HC Deb 28 June 1967 vol 749 c83W
20. Mr. Alasdair Mackenzie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, on the British application to join the Common Market being accepted, he will arrange for representatives of the Scottish Office to take part in the subsequent negotiations, in order to represent the various aspects of the Scottish economy, including hill and upland farming.

54. Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what preparations he has made, or is having made, to ensure that Scottish interests are properly represented in any negotiations to enter the European Economic Community.

Mr. Ross

At this stage it is not possible to go beyond the Answer which my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister gave on 6th June in reply to a Question by my right hon. Friend the Member for Easington (Mr. Shinwell).—[Vol. 747, c.189.]

40. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what investigations are now being carried out by the Scottish Office on the effect upon Scotland of Great Britain joining the Common Market; and how long Scottish Ministers and officials have spent examining these problems in Brussels.

Mr. Ross

The arrangements for interdepartmental consultation ensure that the interests of Scotland are borne in mind. It has not been necessary for Scottish Office Ministers and officials to go to Brussels.
