    Background: The six nation European Parliamentary Assembly, controlling European economic community and 'Euratom', was filmed by VISNEWS when meeting for a session which is expected to last ten days. First business on the agenda was to re-elect M. Robert Schuman, 74, former French Prime Minister, as President for 1959.

    A debate on how the Common Market countries should be associated with the O.E.E.C. is due to begin Jan 13. They are also expected to try again to settle on a 'capital' for the growing number of inter-governmental agencies. M. Schuman, in his re-election address, said the lack of a common site was one of the principal difficulties hindering the Assembly's operation.

    The six nations represented were France-Western Germany-Italy-Belgium_Holland and Luxembourg.
