§ 85. Mr. Marten
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will now make it a condition of any agreement to enter the European Economic Community that Commonwealth citizens acquiring British citizenship shall have the same rights as other British citizens to enter the labour markets of the enlarged Community should Great Britain join the European Economic Community.
§ Mr. Rippon
We accept the Community's policy on free movement of labour. We expect before long to clarify with the Communities the position of British citizens in relation to the Communities' provisions on free movement of labour. In so doing we shall bear in mind the case of those who acquire British citizenship by registration.
§ Mr. Dormand
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has yet decided to issue a simplified guide to the political and economic implications of joining the Common Market to be made widely available, free of charge, through post offices and other public agencies.
§ Mr. Rippon
No. Her Majesty's Government continue to keep under review the means of keeping the public informed on questions connected with our application for membership of the European Economic Community.
