§ Mr. Denzil Freeth
During the negotiations for U.K. membership of the European Economic Community and Euratom, technical collaboration between the Atomic Energy Authority and Euratom was to some extent in abeyance. When these negotiations came to an end in January, collaboration under the U.K./Euratom Agreement of 1959 was resumed on the initiative of the United Kingdom and is proceeding satisfactorily. My right hon. Friend the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, the Chairman of the Atomic Energy Authority, and I took part in May in a successful meeting at Ispra of the U.K./Euratom Continuing Committee, set up under the Agreement.
