The Government's troubles over the Scott report have led to many Tory MPs deciding not to "rock the boat".
But there was no sign of a let-up in the pressure on John Major to oppose further movement by Germany towards EMU at the forthcoming inter-governmental conference. Two Tory Euro-sceptics, Bill Cash and Iain Duncan Smith, warned that the drive towards EMU and a single currency could mean a return to fascism on a European scale. The single currency could also bring higher unemployment and disorder, they claimed.
"The consequences of high unemployment followed by disorder and the potential return of fascism on a European scale make a wider renegotiation imperative," the MPs said at the launch of a pamphlet answering recent remarks by Chancellor Helmut Kohl of Germany.Reuse content
