§ Captain Kerby
asked the Lord Privy Seal how many of the 275 Articles of the Treaty of Rome were accepted by Her Majesty's Government without amendment before the final collapse of the Brussels negotiations; and whether, in particular, Articles 189 and 240 were so accepted.
§ Mr. Heath
We sought no amendment to the text of the Treaty of Rome except in those articles where adaptations were plainly required consequent upon the admission of a new member. Articles 189 and 240 were accepted by us as they stood.
