Quiz UK minister for Europe, Keith Vaz

This forum has been postponed until further notice due to unforeseen circumstances. We will try to bring it to you later.
In the UK, the outcome of the European Union's Nice summit is still a matter of bitter controversy.

The prime minister, Tony Blair, has claimed that his government "advanced the national interest" at the marathon meeting in France.

But the opposition leader William Hague has accused Mr Blair of committing Britain ever more deeply to what he believes is becoming a European super-state.

The summit produced agreements that strengthen the position of the big EU countries (UK, Germany, France and Italy) and pave the way for the enlargement of the union to Eastern Europe.

But do you think the UK got a good deal at the summit? And is Europe going in the right direction?

Keith Vaz, the UK's minister for Europe, will take your questions in a live Forum on Wednesday at 1345 GMT. You can use the form below to send him your questions now.
