  • Description

    Finance Ministers of the European Common Market countries, meeting in Brussels on Monday (March 6), came close to agreement about reducing the fluctuation margins permitted between their currencies. It was the first day of a two-day meeting called to relaunch the Community's move towards economic and monetary union, and to pave the way for a super-session of the Common Market's decision-making council in Brussels on March 20 and 21.

    The Finance Ministers of Britain and the other countries applying for Common Market membership were being advised of progress. And while the Brussels meeting was under way the British Government in London was winning a handsome 47-vote majority against the latest Opposition challenge to its Common Market legislation.

    The French Finance Minister--Valary Giscard D'Estaing--said on arrival that the meeting was important for the world's economy, and aimed to set up a great European monetary and economic entity to provide international monetary equilibrium.
