  • Description

    NEGOTIATIONS ARE TAKING PLACE IN BRUSSELS TO RESOLVE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS FOLLOWING BRITAIN'S APPLICATION TO JOIN THE SIX NATIONS IN THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY, OR COMMON MARKET.

    THE SIX COUNTRIES -- FRANCE, THE FEDERAL GERMAN REPUBLIC, ITALY, HOLLAND, BELGIUM AND LUXEMBOURG -- FORMED THE COMMON MARKET IN 1957 TO BREAK DOWN THE ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL BARRIERS BETWEEN THEM. THE COMMUNITY HAS A POPULATION OF 169 MILLION.

    BRITAIN FIRST PROPOSED TO JOIN THE COMMON MARKET IN OCTOBER 1961, AND SINCE THEN INVOLVED NEGOTIATIONS HAVE BEEN TAKING PLACE. THESE HAVE BEEN COMPLICATED BY BRITAIN'S TRADITIONAL TRADE TIES WITH THE COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES, AND HER MEMBERSHIP OF ANOTHER TRADE GROUP, THE EUROPEAN FREE TRADE ASSOCIATION.

    THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE SIX NATIONS AND BRITAIN OPENED THEIR 17TH ROUND OF NEGOTIATIONS IN BRUSSELS YESTERDAY (MONDAY) AND THESE ARE EXPECTED TO LAST AT LEAST UNTIL THE END OF THE WEEK. BRITAIN'S CHIEF NEGOTIATOR IS MR. EDWARD HEATH.
