We are in discussion with all our EU partners, including the German Presidency, regarding the future of the Constitutional Treaty. At present there is no consensus. The German Presidency has been asked by EU leaders to present a report to the European Council in June on possible next steps following consultation with all EU Governments. I set out the Government's approach in my written ministerial statement of 5 December 2006, Hansard, columns 10-11WS.

Pathetic question and waste of money. Suggest you read the previous one. At £138 to answer such dribble each time is amazing and this should be stopped.
