HC Deb 30 April 1975 vol 891 cc139-40W
Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the provisions of Article 29 of the Treaty of Accession to the EEC have been fully complied with; and, if not, which of the Acts listed in Annex 1 to the Treaty have not been adapted as specified in that Annex.

Mr. Hattersley

The adaptations to Acts adopted by the Institutions which were provided for in Article 29 of the Act of Accession and which are detailed in Annex I to that Act took effect, by virtue of Article 2 of the Act, as from 1st January 1973, the date of entry into force of the Act of Accession, except as otherwise provided by Article 33 of the Decision of the Council of 1st January 1973—(Official Journal of the European Communities No. L2 of 1st January 1973, pp. 1–27)—which took account of Norway's failure to become a member of the European Communities.
