Sir: You report the German Chancellor, Helmut Kohl, indicating during his meeting with our Prime Minister (30 April) that he was prepared not to bring immigration and justice issues into the ambit of European institutions during the current IGC, though he insisted that such a move, fiercely opposed by the British, would come in the next five to six years.

And to think I was under the impression we joined the EU in order to foster improved trading opportunities.
