HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 cc40-1W
67. Mr. Holt

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give an assurance that Her Majesty's Government will not conclude any agreement with the Outer Seven which could prevent Great Britain or any other country of the Seven from subsequently joining the European Economic Community.

Mr. Maudling

A major objective of the Stockholm Group in the present negotiations is to facilitate an association of the Seven with the European Economic Community in arrangements covering all members of O.E.E.C.
