§ 61. Mr. Whitehead
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the so-called Luxembourg compromise which specified the right of veto within the EEC Council of Ministers has been changed by recent decisions of the Community Heads of Government.
§ Mr. Hattersley
No. The communiqué makes it plain that member States are free to maintain their positions regarding the Luxembourg compromise, but there is a general understanding that they will no longer insist on attaining unanimity on every single question regardless of its importance.
