The study I published a year ago showed that the total unnecessary expenditure attributable to working in three places will exceed pounds 500m during the next five years. That is one reason why I have been leading the campaign for a single place of work for the European Parliament.
Although the 12 heads of government agreed in December 1992 that the Parliament's dispersal should become permanent, the European Parliament itself has declared that decision illegal. After this election, if I am returned to the Parliament, I shall seek to ensure that the Parliament concentrates all its activities in Brussels.
