  • Description

    DURING A DEBATE IN THE WEST GERMAN BUNDESTAG, IN BONN, APR 10, CHANCELLOR ADENAUER AND HIS FOREIGN POLICY CAME UNDER HEAVY FIRE FORM THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC LEADER, HERR OLLENHAUER. THE DEBATE STARTED OFF BY DISCUSSION THE GOVERNMENT BUDGET PROPOSALS BUT HERR OLLENHAUER BROADENED HIS COMPLAINTS UNTIL THE GOVERNMENT FOREIGN POLICY BECAME THE MAIN POINT AT ISSUE.

    HERR OLENHAUER CLAIMED THAT THE NATION HAD BEEN GIVEN NO INFORMATION ABOUT HE CHANCELLOR'S TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE IN BADEN BADEN TWO MONTHS AGO. HE SUGGESTED THAT THESE TALKS HAD SLOWED DOWN PLANS FOR EUROPEAN POLITICAL INTEGRATION. HE ALSO ACCUSED DR. ADENAUER OF MAKING BRITISH ENTRY INTO THE COMMON MARKET DIFFICULT. HERR OLLENHAUER THEN CRITICISED DR. ADENAUER AND HIS MINISTER OF DEFENCE, HERR STRAUSS, FOR MAKING OPPOSITE STATEMENT ABOUT THE CREATION OF AN ATLANTIC UNION AND ABOUT NATO BECOMING A FOURTH NUCLEAR POWER.

    DR. ADENAUER DENIED ALL THE CHARGES MADE BY THE OPPOSITION AND SAID THAT ABSOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AS FACING EUROPEAN POLITICAL UNION HAD BEEN SKETCHED IN HIS RECENT DISCUSSIONS WITH ITALIAN PRIME MINISTER FANFANI. HE EXPECTED THAT PROGRESS WOULD BE MADE IN THIS DIRECTION IN THE NEAR FUTURE. HE STATED CLEARLY THAT GERMAN RELATIONS WITH HER ALLIES IN EUROPE AND ELSEWHERE WERE EXCELLENT.

    THE CHANCELLOR SAID IT WAS THE EARNEST WISH OF HIS GOVERNMENT THAT BRITAIN SHOULD SOON JOIN THE COMMON MARKET AS A FULL MEMBER. HE CLAIMED THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WAS IN COMPLETE ACCORD OVER THE QUESTION OF NUCLEAR ARMS AND NATO.
