  • Description

    Three senior members of the British Labour Party resigned from the Shadow Cabinet on Monday (10 April) in a move that split the Opposition wide open on the issue of Europe.

    The three were Mr. Roy Jenkins - who leaves the position of deputy-leader of the Party, and two former ministers, Mr. George Thomson and Mr. Harold Lever.

    Mr. Jenkins stated that the main reason for his resignation was the Show Cabinet's decision to reverse its previous policy - and support the idea of a referendum before British entry into the Common Market becomes final.

    Mr. Harold Lever appeared on the BBC programme "24 Hours" to face questioner, Austin Mitchell.

    SYNOPSIS: London - and one of three senior Labour Party members who've resigned their positions over the Common Market question appeared on television on Monday night.
