    Background: COMMONWEALTH PRIME MINISTERS LEFT MARLBOROUGH HOUSE, LONDON, AFTER THIS (WEDNESDAY) MORNING'S FINAL SESSION OF THEIR TEN-DAY CONFERENCE DEVOTED MAINLY TO DISCUSSIONS ON BRITAIN'S APPLICATION TO JOIN THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET.

    THE DELEGATES SPENT THE MORNING THRASHING OUT THE ACTUAL WORDING OF THEIR FINAL COMMUNIQUE AFTER LAST-MINUTE ARGUMENT OVER ITS CONTENTS. NEW ZEALAND'S PRIME MINISTER HOLYOAKE, WHO HAS DEMANDED MORE ASSURANCES FOR HIS COUNTRY'S VITAL FARM EXPORTS, AFTERWARDS TOLD REPORTERS: "THERE IS A LOT OF NEGOTIATING TO BE DONE YET." MR MACMILLAN, DEFENDING BRITAIN'S POSITION AGAINST COMMONWEALTH ATTACKS THROUGHOUT THE CONTROVERSIAL DEBATE, DECLARED: "EVERYTHING IS FINE."
    (THE COMMUNIQUE, PUBLISHED IN THE AFTERNOON, SAID THERE SHOULD BE CONSULTATIONS BETWEEN THE COMMONWEALTH AND BRITAIN AFTER THE FINAL TERMS FOR BRITISH ENTRY INTO THE COMMON MARKET WERE KNOWN. WHILE ACKNOWLEDGING THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT'S "STRENUOUS EFFORTS" TO OBTAIN COMMONWEALTH SAFEGUARDS FROM THE SIX, THE PRIME MINISTERS HOPED THAT A CLOSER ASSOCIATION BETWEEN BRITAIN AND EUROPE "WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO WEAKEN THE COHESION OF THE COMMONWEALTH".)
