  • Description

    Britain's Prime Minister told a meeting of United States lawyers in London today (July 19) that Britain had to enter the Common Market if it and the rest of Europe were to survive as economic powers. Speaking to a gathering of members of the American Bar Association, which is holding its 94th annual meeting in London, Mr. Heath said that British membership was natural and inevitable. In the perspective of history, he added, it would seem extraordinary that it had remained outside for so long.

    Britain's moves to join the Community come to a climax in October, when Parliament votes on the issue.
