HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 c359W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for Employment at what stage during the transitional period following entry into the European Economic Community he will appoint British representatives to the European Economic Community's Standing Committee on Employment; and whether these representatives will take part in that committee's work to obtain a better status for working women, more effective industrial training methods and improved manpower statistics.

Mr. Dudley Smith

It is not possible at this stage in the negotiations over our application to enter the Community to state when it would be appropriate for representatives of the United Kingdom to be appointed to this Committee or what their participation might involve.
