Belgian Minister Verwilghen says that the B-item request doesn't exist

-> [ Adoption Farce | Patent News ]

Brussles, 9 March 2005 -- Today, Zoe Genot, Member of the Belgian Parliament, asked a parliamentary question about the Competitiveness Council of Monday 7th March. In his answer about the Belgian position, the Minister said that the B-item request doesn't exist. This is at odds with the statement of the Luxemburg Presidency at the beginning of the meeting, which refers to a B-item request by Denmark, Poland and Portugal and says that this request is inadmissible.

There is no way to prove who is right, because there is no recording of what has been said during the whole Council. Only the "public deliberations" part is recorded.
