EC: MT & Hurd notes (Special European Council in Rome) [discussions during the Council meeting] [declassified Dec 2016]

Document type: Declassified documents
Source: PREM19/2979 f9
Editorial comments:

Listed by first day of the Council, but in truth it is hard to date these notes, or to separate them out meaningfully. Probably they cover both days of the Council, 27 and 28 Oct. Some must relate to the first day (27 Oct) because there is reference to the possibility of a topic being raised over dinner, and dinner took place that evening. Other notes are made on the back of a draft of the presidency conclusions, which will have been discussed during the last session of the Council, on the morning of 28 Oct. At the end is a text of the conclusions which was faxed to the FCO on 29 Oct. Read other documents selected from this file. The full file from which this item is taken can be seen here - PREM19-2979
