  • Description

    AFTER A TOUGH DEBATE ON THE AGRICULTURAL POLICY OF THE COMMON MARKET, THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS OF THE SIX REACHED AGREEMENT IN THEIR FINAL SESSION AT BRUSSELS, IN THE EARLY HOURS OF JAN 14.FILM SHOWS THE EARLY STAGES, JAN 13, OF THE 20-HOUR SESSION WHICH ENDED AT 4.30 AM THE FOLLOWING MORNING.

    WITH THIS SUCCESSFUL CONCLUSION OF A MARATHON CONFERENCE THAT STARTED DEC 11, THE COMMON MARKET CAN NOW ENTER THE SECOND STAGE OF ITS TARIFF CUTTING PROGRAMME, AND THE WAY IS NOW CLEAR FOR NEGOTIATIONS WITH PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY, NOTABLY WITH BRITAIN.

    DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FRANCE AND WEST GERMANY WERE THE MAIN STUMBLING BLOCK ON THE ROAD TO THE PRESENT AGREEMENT, WHICH IS HIGHLY COMPLEX AND PROVIDES FOR A NUMBER OF ESCAPE CLAUSES ALLOWING INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS TO TRANSGRESS THE RULES IN TIMES OF AGRICULTURAL OR FINANCIAL CRISIS.

    IN A PRESS CONFERENCE EARLY ON JAN 14, COMMON MARKET MINISTERS DESCRIBED THE AGREEMENT AS THE "CORE OF THE SYSTEM OF EUROPEAN INTEGRATION" AND "A NEW LINK IN THE CHAIN WHICH BINDS EUROPE TOGETHER".
