  • Description

    As the big referendum campaign in France reached its climax this week, two government ministers told a Casino audience in the Riviera resort of Nice whey they should vote for the enlargement of the Common Market on April 23rd.

    President Pompidou, who is due to make his final appeal for a vote in favour of the market enlargement today (Friday), is hoping for a massive endorsement of his policies in Europe.

    The success of France within the new Europe was the theme taken up by the two members of the government speaking in Nice -- Minister of the Interior Raymond Marcellin and Industrial and Scientific Development Minister Francois-Xavier Ortoli. Our coverage include extracts from both their speeches:
    SYNOPSIS: Refusing to gamble on the outcome of Sunday's referendum on the enlargement of the Common Market, French government ministers have been stepping up their campaign for a massive endorsement of their policies. In a Casino at the Riviera resort of Nice, Industrial and Scientific Development Minister Ortoli put the government cases:
    Mr. Ortoli recalled the anxieties felt in France when the country first joined the Common Market in 1958. But France had prospered within the community, and M. Ortoli had no doubt she would continue to do so in an enlarged Common Market.

    The second speaker was Minister of the Interior Raymond Marcellin. The government campaign for a favourable vote in the referendum was to be concluded by President Pompidou with a nationwide broadcast on Friday. But opinion polls were suggesting that a large number of people might abstain from voting.
