Brussels, 25 November 2003

The Council will discuss the Commission proposal for a Council Decision that aims at establishing "implementing provisions" with regard to research activities involving human embryonic stem cells eligible for EU funding in order to find a political agreement.

At the Council meeting on 22 September, it was decided that the issue would be discussed again following the European Parliament's opinion. On 19 November, the EP delivered its opinion in which it proposes amendments to the Commission proposal.
