HC Deb 06 November 1962 vol 666 c58W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Lord Privy Seal what steps are being taken to devise alternative plans for Great Britain's economic relations with the Commonwealth, the European Free Trade Association countries and the rest of the world in the event of Great Britain not joining the European Economic Community.

Mr. Heath

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 other matters.
