I contrast that with the amount of time we've spent this afternoon in discussing relatively small amount to assist some of the less prosperous countries. If we had a agricultural system in Europe which more nearly reflected the proper level of prices which would avoid the surplus we would get on a lot lot better and be able to help some of the less prosperous countries much more than we're doing at the moment.

The possibility certainly exists that some ingenious EEC compromise will be worked out to bring the Irish and Italians in. But the basic problem yet again has been the growing gap between the richer and poorer in Europe and no one's yet worked out a way of bridging that. This is John Simpson in Brussels.
