§ 31. Mrs. Winifred Ewing
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in all discussions on negotiations with the EEC, he will ensure that he is accompanied by a representative of the Scottish Office.
§ Mr. Peart
I am in constant touch with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland, and representatives of the Scottish Office accompany me whenever we consider that this is appropriate. I can assure the hon. Member that in discussions in the EEC Her Majesty's Ministers take full account of the interests of all parts of the United Kingdom.
