MOTION FOR A RESOLUTION

on the organisation by the Parliamentary Assembly

of special debates on European co-operation

presented by Mrs HALLER and others


1.       Progress by the European Community towards the 1993 Single Market and European Union has far-reaching implications for other Council of Europe countries. However, it is likely that several of these states, mostly those situated in Central and Eastern Europe will not be able to adhere to the Community before several years.

2.       Members of parliament of all partners of the future Europe have a particular interest to hold political exchanges of views with the representatives of the "12" on Community developments and the progress of the building of Europe on the whole.

3.       Because of its geographic extension and its long-standing tradition of co-operation with the European Community, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe constitutes the most appropriate forum for such exchanges of views.

4.       Consequently the Assembly decides:

i.       to organise special debates on the progress of the building of Europe as a whole;

ii.       to associate representatives of the European Parliament, the Council and Commission of the European Community, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and the Secretary General of the Council of Europe with these debates.
