HC Deb 26 April 1971 vol 816 cc17-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will make a statement on his meeting with the Council of the Western European Union and his discussions with Netherlands Ministers, including Dr. Luns, held in The Hague on Monday, 19th April, 1971.

Mr. Rippon

Proceedings in the Western European Union Council are confidential but I can state that there was a marked convergence of views on most issues. In my meetings with Netherlands Ministers, we discussed questions relating to the European Economic Community enlargement negotiations. Details of these discussions are also confidential.
