§ Q9. Mr. Donald Stewart
asked the Prime Minister if he will seek to make arrangements, if Great Britain enters the European Economic Community, for the Secretary of State for Scotland to be a member of the Council of Ministers.
§ The Prime Minister
We can have only one representative in the Council of Ministers, who will be my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. But my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and his officials will take a full part in preparatory discussions in this 359W country before policy issues of interest to Scotland are considered in the Council of Ministers.
