HC Deb 18 November 1958 vol 595 c122W
73. Mr. Donnelly

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will order an inquiry into the possibility of closer economic union with the Scandinavian countries, Austria and Switzerland pending the outcome of the negotiations with the European Common Market Powers.

Mr. Maudling

This question is linked to the Free Trade Area negotiations, about which I made a statement yesterday. I should prefer not to add to that statement just now.
