  • Description

    THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT HAS CATEGORICALLY REJECTED ANY IDEA OF SEPARATE EUROPEAN DETERRENT. MR. HAROLD WILSON, THE PRIME MINISTER, EMPHASISED THIS DURING HIS SPEECH TONIGHT (MONDAY) AT THE TRADITIONAL LORD MAYOR'S BANQUET IN LONDON.

    EARLIER IN THE SPEECH MR. WILSON PAID THIS TRIBUTE TO THE UNITED NATIONS:
    THE PRIME MINISTER BROKE WITH THE USUAL TRADITION OF THE BANQUET. INSTEAD OF TREATING IN DETAIL WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S ATTITUDE TO A MAJOR ISSUE IN WORLD AFFAIRS, HE WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO REPUDIATE RACIALISM AT HOME AND ABROAD:
    AND THEN MR. WILSON TURNED TO "THE PROBLEMS OF THE ALLIANCE, WHICH WILL DOMINATE THE DISCUSSIONS WE ARE TO HAVE WITH THE UNITED STATES AND WITH OUR EUROPEAN PARTNERS OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS AND MONTHS." HE FIRST MENTIONED THE TENDENCIES TO SEPARATISM:
    (IN HIS SPEECH, MR WILSON ALSO REFERRED TO BRITAIN'S FRIENDS IN EFTA, THE REST OF EUROPE AND THE WIDER TRADING COMMUNITY OF WHICH BRITAIN IS A PART. HE SAID THE SERIOUS TRADE CAP HAD FORCED HIS GOVERNMENT TO TAKE TEMPORARY MEASURES TO CHECK IMPORTS WHICH, HOWEVER UNAVOIDABLE, HE REGARDED AS A STEP IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. BUT HE SAID THE MEASURES WERE ONLY TEMPORARY AND WOULD LAST ONLY AS LONG AS THEY WERE NEEDED.)
