Letter: Jacques Delors, I claim my pounds 140,000

Sir: I was pleased to read that Jacques Delors had offered a prize of pounds 140,000 for anyone who can come up with a working definition of subsidiarity ('Bad omens for Birmingham', 15 October). I should have thought that it was straightforward:

Any measure of which the Government approves should be pursued with maximum vigour, with defaulting countries taken to the European Court etc.

Any measure of which the Government does not approve is outside the competence of the EC.

Can I have the money in ecus, please?

Yours faithfully,


Gravesend, Kent
