HC Deb 19 March 1968 vol 761 c77W
Q14. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Prime Minister whether he will propose an official visit to the Chancellor of the German Federal Republic to discuss Government policy towards the European Economic Community.

The Prime Minister

I have no present plans for an early meeting but we are, of course, already in very close touch with the German Government on this subject.

Q16. Mr. Chapman

asked the Prime Minister whether Her Majesty's Government will accept, as a basis for discussion, the eight-point programme for phased British entry to the European Economic Community, which has been sent to him and which is now tabled for discussion by Herr Brandt, particularly if the final point of the programme envisages a definite and not distant date for British entry.

The Prime Minister

German proposals based on their eight-point programme are still under discussion by the Council of Ministers of the European Economic Community. We have made it clear that we would be prepared to consider any proposal made to us by the Community as a whole.
