NotesNews: 1 April: Conservative Euro-sceptics were yesterday deciding their tactics for the remaining sections of the Maastricht bill in the wake of the Government's success in forcing an into-the-night sitting in the Commons to cover most of the bill's remaining sections. Labour's previous attempt at forcing the Government to accept the social chapter, amendment 27, which would delete the opt-out clause from British law, may also still be raised at the bill's report stage. Police are to be given powers to curb convoys of New Age travellers and break up rave parties under legislation announced by the Home Office yesterday.
