I have been asked to reply.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office Ministers regularly meet their EU counterparts, as well as a broad range of external stakeholders, to discuss a range of issues including the treaty of Lisbon. For example, in January 2008, and I met the National Council for Voluntary Organisations the issue of the proposed "EU Compact" was raised. The issue was also raised at a meeting on 4 February between FCO Ministers and a range of stakeholders.
