    Background: FRANCE'S FOREIGN MINISTER, M. MAURICE COUVE DE MURVILLE, TOLD THE WESTERN EUROPEAN UNION PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY IN PARIS TODAY (MONDAY) THAT EACH NUCLEAR POWER MUST RETAIN INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FINGER-ON-THE-TRIGGER OF ATOMIC WEAPONS.

    SPEAKING AT THE START OF A FOUR-DAY SESSION OF THE ASSEMBLY, COMPOSED OF PARLIAMENTARIANS OF THE SIX COMMON MARKET TODAY CONSTITUTED THE BASIS OF ANY EFFECTIVE SECURITY SYSTEM.

    HE WENT ON: "THE NEEDS OF COLLECTIVE DEFENCE AND FINANCIAL, ECONOMIC AND TECHNICAL FACTORS MUST BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION AND RECONCILED."
    CALLING FOR A STREAMLINING OF EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS, HE SAID THEIR MULTIPLICITY AND THE REPETITIVE DEBATES AT PARLIAMENTARY MEETINGS, WHICH HAVE BEEN CRITICISED, MUST BE REMEDIED.

    THIS, HE ADDED, COULD ONLY PROCEED WHEN WESTERN EUROPE WAS ORIENTED TOWARD A STABLE REGIME - AND THIS DEPENDED ON CONCLUSION OF CURRENT NEGOTIATIONS FOR AN ENLARGED COMMON MARKET.

    OTHER KEY TOPICS RECEIVED AT THE ASSEMBLY MEETING INCLUDE CREATION OF A NATO NUCLEAR FORCE, THE BERLIN ISSUE, AND DISARMAMENT.

    BEFORE THE MEETING SETTLED DOWN TO DEBATE, DELEGATES STOOD IN SILENT TRIBUTE TO FRANCE'S LATE FORMER PRESIDENT RENE COTY AND EX-QUEEN WILHELMINA OF THE NETHERLANDS.
