HC Deb 20 June 1961 vol 642 cc120-1W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what effect Britain's entry into the Common Market would have upon the relations between Gambia and French West Africa.

Mr. Iain Macleod

It has been made clear that the nature of future relations between the Gambia and her neighbours will be for the Gambia people to decide when, after further stages of constitutional developments a fully representative Gambian Government is able to address itself to the problems. I cannot at present gauge how Gambians would be influenced by any change, if it were to come about, in the United Kingdom's relations with the European Economic Community.
