HC Deb 22 March 1973 vol 853 cc154-5W
27. Mr. Rankin

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will raise the subject of discrepancies in average incomes between parts of the United Kingdom and the EEC countries at the next meeting of the EEC Finance

Mr. Higgins

No, Sir. The next meeting of the Community Finance Ministers will be concerned with the short-term economic situation in the Community which would not be the appropriate context for discussion of this question.
