IN THE CHAIR: Mr WIEBENGA


Vice-President

The following spoke:


 Swoboda who referred to his remarks at the beginning of the sitting (Item 2); he pointed out that
paragraph 4 of the legislative resolution contradicted the decisions taken by Parliament.
 Jarzembowski who disputed this on the grounds that the contradiction did not affect the co-herence
of the text and would give the Commission food for thought; he considered that nothing needed to be
changed in the legislative resolution which reflected the position adopted the previous day by the
majority of Parliament.
(the President stated that the matter would be looked into)
