HC Deb 26 April 1971 vol 816 c13W
59. Dr. Gilbert

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to officials either of the Commission of the European Economic Community or of its member countries with respect to the leakages of information about Her Majesty's Government's reply to the questionnaire on the future rôle of sterling.

Mr. Rippon

We have made it clear that we expect these matters to be treated in absolute confidence and are collaborating with member governments of the Communities to ensure this.
