HC Deb 30 April 1975 vol 891 c175W
31. Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will establish a permanent branch of the Scottish Office in Brussels in order to represent the interests of Scotland to the EEC Commission.

Mr. William Ross

No. The United Kingdom representation in Brussels covers the interests of the whole of the United Kingdom, and Scottish interests are fully taken into account. Where appropriate, officials of the Scottish Office support the permanent representation in Brussels.
