Mr. Jack McEwen, the Australian Deputy Prime Minister, arrived in London today (TUESDAY July 7) for talks with the British government. He will be having discussion with Britain's European Affairs Minister, Mr. Anthony Barber, on ways of dealing with the special problems for Australia should Britain enter the Common Market.
Mr. Barber has special responsibility for negotiating Britain's terms of entry into the European Economic Community. He is currently meeting the representatives of the six countries in the Community: france West Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy.
The New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. John Marshall, is also in London on a similar mission. He has seen the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. James Prior, as well as Mr. Barber and the Foreign Secretary, Sir Alec Douglas Hume.
Australia and New Zealand export much of their agricultural and dairy produce to Britain, and these would be substantially affected by Britain's entry into the EEC.
