  • Description

    M. JEAN MONNET'S ACTION COMMITTEE FOR A UNITED EUROPE MET IN PARIS TODAY (MONDAY) TO WORK ON A DRAFT DECLARATION URGING SPEEDY PROGRESS IN THE UNIFICATION OF EUROPE AND THE ORGANISATION OF THE WEST.

    SUBJECT TO AMENDMENT, THE DRAFT ADVOCATES A RAPID CONCLUSION OF THE BRUSSELS NEGOTIATIONS ON BRITAIN'S ENTRY INTO THE COMMON MARKET. THIS IS TO PAVE THE WAY FOR A START WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY ON THE POLITICAL UNION OF EUROPE. THE COMMITTEE REGARDS THE BRITISH ENTRY AND THE PROSPECT OF A COHESIVE EUROPE AS THE KEY TO A DEVELOPING PARTNERSHIP WITH THE UNITED STATES.

    LEADERS OF MOST MAJORITY PARTIES AND TRADE UNIONS OF THE SIX COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES BELONG TO M. MONNET'S COMMITTEE. THREE FORMER PRIME MINISTERS - M. PINAY, M. GUY MOLLET AND M. PFLIMLIN - ARE AMONG THE FRENCH DELEGATES. THOSE FROM WEST GERMANY INCLUDE FORMER FOREIGN MINISTER VON BRENTANO, SOCIAL DEMOCRAT LEADER OLLENHAUER, AND HERR WEHNER, ANOTHER POWERFUL MAN IN THE SPD.

    AT THE CHATEAU DE LA MUETTE TODAY, THE COMMITTEE OF THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE'S 16 MINISTERS MET TO COMPLETE ITS NEW LEGAL PROGRAMME AND DISCUSS OTHER ISSUES. A MAJOR DECISION TAKEN TODAY WAS TO INVITE SWITZERLAND TO BECOME THE COUNCIL'S 17TH MEMBER.

    PRESIDED OVER BY SIGNOR ATTILIO PICCIONI, THE ITALIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, THE MEETING WAS ATTENDED ALSO BY MR HEATH, BRITAIN'S CHIEF NEGOTIATOR IN THE BRUSSELS TALKS.

    THE MINISTERS OF THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE WERE LATER INTERROGATED BY DELEGATES FROM THE PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY. MOST OF THE QUESTIONS WERE DIRECTED TO THE PRESENT PHASE OF THE COMMON MARKET NEGOTIATIONS AND TO OTHER ASPECTS OF EUROPEAN CONSTRUCTION ON WHICH M. MONNET'S COMMITTEE WAS CALLING FOR ACTION.
