A paper summarises the government's five economic tests for joining the euro, and the Treasury's negative opinions on whether they were fulfilled in 1997, and assesses whether they are fulfilled in 2002. It is argued that they are still not fulfilled, and that a sixth test should be added assessing the sustainability of the pound-to-euro exchange rate on entry.
