HC Deb 25 April 1975 vol 890 c430W
Mr. Gould

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs under which provision of the Treaty of Rome the Commissioners propose to intervene against the French Government's action in closing their borders to Italian wine.

Mr. Hattersley

The Commission has not informed us under which Article or Articles it proposed to intervene against the French Government. Article 169 defines the course to be taken if it considers that a member State has failed to fulfil an obligation under the Treaty.
