HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 c5W
44. Mr. Wade

asked the Lord Privy Seal what precise proposals he has put forward, in his discussions with representatives of the European Common Market countries for a modification of the present proposals envisaged in the Rome Treaty for a common agricultural policy; and what effect, he estimates, these proposals, as so modified, will have on the over-all price of food in this country in the event of Great Britain joining the Common Market.

Mr. Godber

The discussions which have so far taken place have been informal and exploratory and no such proposals have been put forward.

66. Mr. Holt

asked the Lord Privy Seal, in view of the further recent consideration by the European Free Trade Association of the possibility of Great Britain's entry into the Common Market, whether Her Majesty's Government now has any objections in principle to any of the articles 1 to 8 inclusive of the Rome Treaty which outline its purposes, main activities and its institutional structure.

Mr. Heath

I have nothing to add to the very full statement which I made to the House on 17th May.
