HC Deb 24 March 1971 vol 814 c128W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Lord President of the Council whether, in view of Her Majesty's Government's desire to expedite British entry to the European Economic Community, he will give the reasons why he will not now move to appoint a Select Committee of the House of Commons to examine and report on ways of achieving this end.

Mr. Whitelaw

Because I am sure that the House will have adequate, and more appropriate, opportunities of considering this matter.
