Economic and Monetary Union (Hansard, 16 January 1997)
HC Deb 16 January 1997 vol 288 c382W
Mr. Eric Clarke

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the timetable for EMU. [9525]

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The EC Treaty sets out the timetable for EMU. As I have said before—to the House of Lords Select Committee on 28 March 1996—it is too soon to say whether EMU will start on 1 January 1999, but member states will continue to prepare on that basis.
