Minister Cowen welcomes publication of National Forum on Europe's 'Summary of the Draft Constitutional Treaty for the EU'
I warmly welcome today's publication by the National Forum on Europe of its “Summary of the Draft Constitutional Treaty of the European Union”. This clear and informative guide will make a valuable contribution to the public debate on the outcome of the European Convention and the coming Intergovernmental Conference (IGC).
Throughout the Convention process, the National Forum, under its Chairman Senator Maurice Hayes, played a key role in keeping the general public informed about developments and in debating key issues of concern for Ireland and the European Union and I look forward to it fulfilling the same important role as the IGC continues its work.
