HC Deb 23 October 1958 vol 592 cc266-7W
Mr. Bottomley

asked the Prime Minister to what extent, in his talks with the German Chancellor about the proposed European Free Trade area, he took account of the known views of the Commonwealth countries; and if he will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

I have nothing to add to the agreed communiqué which was issued after my talks with Dr. Adenauer.

We have, of course, kept in close touch with Commonwealth Governments throughout.
