Deans Place Hotel, AlfristonReforming the EU
We timed this year’s seminar, our third at Deans Place, with the imminent euro-elections in mind. The consequences of the results are likely to influence much that is to come.
The day started with an assessment of the UK’s longer-term interests within the EU framework, with the sensitive issues for the country that this involves tackled by Alan Mayhew. The focus shifted after lunch to the European Parliament, with two ‘insiders’, South-East MEP Richard Ashworth and EP election candidate Antony Hook, arguing from their differing viewpoints for the changes to the institutions and practices that they saw as desirable.
