HC Deb 08 March 1962 vol 655 c92W
60. Mr. Marsh

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will set up an interdepartmental committee to prepare plans to meet the situation in the event of the United Kingdom being unable to obtain terms which would enable it to enter the Common Market.

Mr. Heath

No. We are making every effort to ensure that our negotiations with the European Economic Community succeed, and it would be a mistake to divert our energies at this time to dealing with other matters.
