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 and 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 In The Press section. Historical archives can be found at the Letters to the Editor and Euromyths sections. The EU in the Media section details recent interviews by Commissioners and spokespeople. We arrange press conferences and interviews for European Commissioners visiting the UK. We have a range of prints, transparencies, electronic images and broadcast-quality film for loan at no cost. Members of the Representation are available to give broadcast quality interviews via an ISDN line from our Westminster office.

Here in the online Press Room you can find Factsheets to help you understand what lies behind some of the EU stories featured in the UK media, or find out some of the truths behind the most persistent Euromyths. If you are a journalist looking for information, our Press team is available to assist you.

The online Press Room is also a portal to the full range of press services on offer from the European Commission. These include:

  •     The full range of audiovisual services , including an internet feed for watching press conferences and press briefings via Europe by Satellite, as well as photo coverage of European events.
