§ 73. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give an assurance that in the negotiations for British entry into the European Economic Community the interests of the United Kingdom's European Free Trade Association partners will be fully safeguarded in accordance with the 1961 London Agreement.
§ Mr. George Brown
No, Sir. As was made clear by my right hon. Friend the Minister of State on 1st May, there is general recognition in the European Freen Trade Association that the 1961 London Declaration no longer applies in the circumstances of today.—[Vol. 746, c. 87.]
