NotesDouglas Hurd tried last night to prepare Conservative MPs for a deal on European Union voting rights after warning them that failure to reach an agreement could mean the collapse of the Government's cherished aim of a wider Europe... The Foreign Secretary told the meeting that he had not shifted from his original negotiating stance that the blocking minority should stand at 23. But he knows that he will have to move if there is to be an agreement allowing the European Parliament to ratify enlargement at its May meeting. (Philip Webster, The Times)
