Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 109 and 110 together.

I attended a meeting of the European Council in Brussels on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 March 2019.

The agenda for our discussions included Brexit; jobs, growth and competitiveness; relations with China ahead of the EU-China Summit on 9 April; climate change; and efforts to combat disinformation.

We also met with the leaders of Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein and marked the 25th anniversary of the European Economic Area.

Our discussions did not include Hungary nor proposals on EU reform.
