  • Description

    The new European Assembly, serves as the Parliamentary body for the three institutions of 'Little Europe' - the common market, Euratom, and the Goal and Steel Community - was inaugurated here this morning. A few minutes later, the anticipated election of M. Robert Schumann of France, as President, was formally achieved. There has not been such activity at the Maison de l'Europe since the inauguration of the Council of Europe in 1949. The Chamber, public and Press galleries were packed and the parliamentary benches were compactly filled with 140 parliamentarians. This inaugural session was mainly one of procedure and the speeches reflected, in their self confidence - and, even, self congratulation -that this new star in European unity is destined to become very bright indeed.
