  • Description

    THE FOREIGN MINISTERS OF THE SIX COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES AND BRITAIN MET APRIL 10 AT THE LONDON HEADQUARTERS OF THE WESTERN, EUROPEAN UNION - OF WHICH ALL ARE MEMBER COUNTRIES - TO DISCUSS, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE OUTCOME OF THE WORK OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE 'SIX' IN THE FOUCHET COMMITTEE ON THE QUESTION OF EUROPEAN POLITICAL INTEGRATION. SO FAR, THE COMMITTEE'S DISCUSSIONS HAVE RESULTED IN STALEMATE.

    MR. HEATH, THE LORD PRIVY SEAL, BRIAIN'S CHIEF NEGOTIATOR IN HER MOVES TOWARDS POSSIBLE ENTRY INTO THE COMMON MARKET, WILL, IT IS UNDERSTOOD, TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT BRITAIN DOES NOT WISH TO EVADE THE POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS OF BELONGING TO THE COMMON MARKET, ONCE THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS BESETTING HER APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP HAVE BEEN SETTLED.

    IT IS, HOWEVER, DIFFICULT FOR THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT TO MAKE CLEAR THEIR ATTITUDE ON EUROPEAN POLITICAL INTEGRATION, SINCE THE 'SIX' THEMSELVES HAVE NOT AS YET REACHED AGREEMENT ON THIS. GERMANY, ITALY, AND THE BENELUX COUNTRIES HAVE OPPOSED ANY WEAKENING OF SUPRANATIONAL POWERS OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY, WHILE PRESIDENT GAULLE OF FRANCE IS KNOWN TO FAVOUR A SYSTEM WHEREBY THE PEOPLES OF THE EACH COUNTRY WOULD PRESENCE A VETO.
