HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c123W
90. Mr. Maginnis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to what extent Article 224 of the Treaty of Rome will be applied if the United Kingdom joins the European Economic Community with the Northern Ireland troubles still unresolved.

Mr. Rippon:

That is a hypothetical question to which an answer could be given only in the light of the relevant circumstances at the time.
