Letter: This European Disunion

Sir: As a citizen of Finland, I have been following the European Union's institutional discussion with great interest and fear. It looks as if the UK government is effectively blocking the entry of my country into the EU. The baby will be thrown away with the bath water - as we Finns also say.

This will be the case if the Major government continues to reject continuation of the present decision-making principles in the council of the EU.

This policy is very difficult to understand, after all the lip-service John Major and his cabinet have given to enlargement - especially since the whole issue of institutional reform will be discussed in 1996.

Sincerely yours,



16 March
