    BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY GEORGE BROWN TODAY (FRIDAY) HAD THREE-HOUR TALKS WITH ITALIAN FOREIGN MINISTER AMINTORE FANFANI ON THE SITUATION CREATED BY FRANCE'S VETO OF EARLY NEGOTIATIONS FOR BRITAIN'S ENTRY INTO THE COMMON MARKET. LATER, REPORTS SAID THAT MR. BROWN WAS VERY ENCOURAGED BY THE DISCUSSIONS.

    MR. BROWN ARRIVED IN ROME EARLIER TODAY FOR A ONE-DAY OFFICIAL VISIT AT THE INVITATION OF SIGNOR FANFANI, WHO IS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF BRITAIN'S MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION.

    THE TWO LEADERS HAD A ONE-HOUR MEETING THIS MORNING FOLLOWED BY A WORKING LUNCH AND A FURTHER SESSION THIS AFTERNOON.

    THEY ARE REPORTED TO HAVE DISCUSSED TECHNOLOGICAL AND POSSIBLE POLITICAL CO-OPERATION BETWEEN BRITAIN AND ONE OR MORE MEMBER NATIONS, BUT THE PROJECTS DISCUSSED WERE STILL AT A GENERAL STAGE.

    FRANCE BLOCKED AN EARLY START TO NEGOTIATIONS ON THE MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONS OF BRITAIN, NORWAY, DENMARK AND IRELAND AT A MEETING OF THE COMMON MARKET'S MINISTERIAL COUNCIL IN BRUSSEL'S ON DECEMBER THE 18TH AND 19TH.

    BRITAIN HOPES TO HAVE SIMILAR CONSULTATIONS WITH OTHER COUNTRIES WHO OPPOSED THE FRENCH VETO.
