  • Description

    The European Parliamentary Assembly of the six Powers yesterday deferred until June 23rd its vote on the choice of a capital for the European communities, which it will recommend to the Ministers concerned.

    Nine European cities are in the running for the honour of the European Capital: Strassbourg, Paris, Nizza, Mailand, Turin, Monza, Streza, Luxemburg, Brussels.

    In the face of strong Socialist opposition, and after an animated debate, it decided on postponement in view of the absence of the greater part of its French and Italian members, the former detained in Paris by the crisis, and the latter busy with their election campaign.

    The Assembly agreed before it cross to hold a full-dress debate on the subject at the beginning of its next session on June 21st. It is then expected also to consider the free trade area, and the High Authority's annual report in detail.
