HC Deb 11 December 1974 vol 883 c174W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will give to the National Referendum Campaign the equivalent amount of finanical support to that given to the European Movement and the European Education Trust.

Mr. Hattersley

It would not be appropriate to provide public funds for publicity either for or against membership of the European Communities while we are renegotiating the terms of entry. The grants to the British Council of the European Movement and to the European Educational Research Trust are made to support exchange programmes with countries of Western Europe.
