    A CRUCIAL MEETING OF ELDO, THE EUROPEAN LAUNCHER DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATION, OPENED IN PARIS TODAY (TUESDAY) FACED WITH SEVERAL PROBLEMS IN ITS PLAN TO PUT AN ANGLO-EUROPEAN RESEARCH AND COMMUNICATIONS SATELLITE INTO ORBIT.

    THE THREE DAY MEETING IS CONSIDERED AS THE ORGANISATION'S MOST CRITICAL TO DATE AS IT IS ESTIMATED THAT COSTS HAVE NEARLY DOUBLED SINCE THE PROJECT WAS FIRST SET UP IN 1961. THE SEVEN MEMBERS OF ELDO ARE BRITAIN, FRANCE, WEST GERMANY, ITALY, BELGIUM, THE NETHERLANDS AND AUSTRALIA.

    DURING TODAY'S SESSION, THE MINISTERS SET UP FOUR WORKING GROUPS TO REPORT TO THEM ON THE MAIN PROBLEMS BESETTING EUROPE'S FIRST SATELLITE VENTURE. THE GROUPS ARE TO STUDY THE ORGANISATIONS STRUCTURE, LAUNCHER ROCKETS AND THEIR DEVELOPMENT, LAUNCHING SITES AND THE CO-ORDINATION OF EUROPEAN SPACE POLICY. THE GROUPS ARE TO ADVISE ON WHAT MEASURES ARE NECESSARY AND HOW TO GIVE EUROPE THE CAPABILITY OF PUTTING A COMMUNICATION SATELLITE IN ORBIT BY 1970, WHEN AN INTERNATIONAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONFERENCE IS TO BE HELD.
