    BRITAIN FORMALLY APPLIED FOR ANOTHER LINK WITH THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY COUNTRIES, MAR 5, WHEN SIR ARTHUR TANDY, BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO THE EUROPEAN ATOMIC ENERGY COMMUNITY (EURATOM), DELIVERED A REQUEST TO JOIN EURATOM AT ITS HEADQUARTERS IN BRUSSELS, BELGIUM.

    THE LETTER WAS ADDRESSED TO M. COUVE DE MURVILLE, CHAIRMAN OF THE COUNCIL OF MINISTER, FROM MR. MACMILLAN, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER. IT WAS HANDED TO M. CALVEZ, A MINISTER OF THE E.E.C. EURATOM WAS SET UP IN 1957. IT IS THE "NUCLEAR CLUB" - FOR PEACEFUL PURPOSES ONLY - OF THE SIX E.E.C. (COMMON MARKET) COUNTRIES.

    MARCH 2, BRITAIN FORMALLY APPLIED FRO MEMBERSHIP OF THE EUROPEAN COAL AND STEEL COMMUNITY (ECSC) AT ITS HEADQUARTERS N LUXEMBOURG. IN THE ECSC TREATY, ALL THE COAL, STEEL, IRON ORE AND SCRAP METAL OF THE "SIX" ARE POOLED UNDER A HIGH AUTHORITY.

    SINCE 1958, BRITAIN HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH ECSC - AND HAS ALSO CO-OPERATED IN EURATOM PROJECTS. WHEN BRITAIN APPLIED FOR MEMBERSHIP OF THE E.E.C. LAST AUTUMN, THE "SIX" WERE TOLD THAT OTHER APPLICATIONS WOULD FOLLOW.
