HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 cc273-4W
Mr. Trew

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what arrangements are being made to celebrate British entry into the European Economic Community in January, 1973.

Mr. Rippon

As my noble Friend the Paymaster-General announced in another place on 22nd March, a committee under the chairmanship of Lord Goodman is organising a programme of artistic events in the United Kingdom in January, 1973. The cost to Her Majesty's Government of the programme will not exceed £250,000 and a Supplementary Estimate will be submitted to Parliament for approval. Lord Mancroft has agreed to take the chair of a parallel committee to consider the co-ordination and encouragement of a wide range of popular activities such as are not covered by Lord Goodman's Committee.
