§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on what further progress has been made in resolving the problems associated with establishing a common regional policy for the EEC; and what matters still remain to be resolved in relation to the proposed regional development fund.
§ Mr. John Davies
I have at present nothing to add to the statement I made to the House on 16th January.—[Vol. 867, c. 540–554.]
As the hon. Member will no doubt be aware, the Council of Ministers is to hold a further meeting on 30th January to discuss the Community's regional policy.
