§ Sir Teddy Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the procedures for informing industry, commerce and the public about the effect of the provisions of the treaty of Maastricht.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
I am satisfied that an appropriate effort has been made to explain the effects of the Maastricht treaty. We have issued a number of publications. Recent Foreign and Commonwealth Office publications include Europe After Maastricht, Britain in Europe, and The European Elections—Why They Matter to You. The Department of Trade and Industry recently issued The Single Market—Making It Work For You". This includes advice to business on the European Community's legislative process.
