§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will place in the Library an English translation of the speech by Jorge Semprun to the Weimar meeting on EU cultural and audio visual issues. 
§ Mr. Alan Howarth
I refer the hon. Member to the replies I gave him on 15 June 1999,Official Report, column 88W, and 6 July 1999, Official Report, column 458W. In those answers I outlined the informal discussions of the meeting in Weimar to which Jorge 433W Semprun contributed. The text of his contribution was placed in the Library. Translations of the proceedings of informal Culture/Audiovisual Council meetings are not made: this would be prohibitively expensive.
