Representation in United Kingdom

EU Press Room

Welcome to the on-line Press Room

The Representation's Press Office serves the national media and English regional and local media, as well as international media based in London. Our offices in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast deal with regional media in their respective areas.

We are here to provide a rapid response to journalists on topical European Union issues and bring issues of possible media interest to their attention.

In addition to responding to requests for information from journalists, the Press Office encourages accurate media coverage of the EU. Our responses to inaccurate stories are posted in our Euromyths blog.

We post EU stories with particular UK relevance on the front page of our website and circulate these to journalists.

We arrange press conferences and interviews for European Commissioners visiting the UK.

Journalists can also subscribe to our media planning newsletter and Weekly round-up via email:
