NotesDouglas Hurd issued a warning last night [21/3/94] that he was prepared to take Europe to the brink of crisis rather than surrender Britain's rights in the dispute over European Union voting strengths. The Foreign Secretary and John Major toughened their negotiating stance in advance of today's crucial Brussels meeting of European foreign ministers saying that Britain would not be "steamrollered" over its right to reject Euro-legislation. (Philip Webster, The Times)
