§ 9. Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will arrange for a complete dossier of documents, agreements, minutes of discussions and all relevant papers connected with the discussions on the Common Market to be made available in the Library of the House of Commons.
§ 10. Mr. Swingler
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will give an assurance that he will propose, in the negotiations concerning Britain's relations with the Common Market, that the British statutory film levy should be exempt from the provisions of the Rome Treaty.
§ Mr. Heath
Article 92 of the Treaty of Rome provides for the possible continuation of State aids in certain circum2W stances. I understand that experts of the Commission and the Six are still at the stage of exchanging information on the application of these provisions to the film industry and that no proposals are likely to be submitted to the Council of Ministers for some time. It would, therefore, be inappropriate for Her Majesty's Government to make the proposal that the hon. Gentleman suggests.
§ 11. Mr. Swingler
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he is aware that the proposals for dealing with the film industry are now being prepared by the High Commission for submission to the Council of Ministers of the European Economic Community; if he will apply to the Commission for a copy of these proposals when submitted and consult representatives of the British film industry on their likely effects if Britain joins the Common Market.
§ 29. Mr. Worsley
asked the Lord Privy Seal what consultations he has had with other countries applying for membership of the European Economic Community with a view to co-ordinating the applications.
