1991 - Mr Major’s Doorstep Interview in Maastricht
Below is Mr Major's doorstep interview in Maastricht on Tuesday 10th December 1991.
Prime Minister, what progress were you able to make at the dinner last night with your colleagues?
We have made some good progress in a number of areas, some very good progress indeed in some areas, but there is still a long way to go before there will be an agreement.
Are you prepared to make some concessions on the social issues to gain what you want on the economic treaty?
There are a whole series of things yet to be determined and they will be determined in the negotiating session and not outside it.
Are you confident that today you will get a settlement?
It is not a question of me getting a settlement, it is a question of Europe getting a settlement, it is a question of an agreement that everybody in Europe can subscribe to. We are still some way short of that, how will it go today we will have to wait and see.
