HC Deb 24 March 1975 vol 889 c8W
Mr. George Gardiner

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether it is the Government's assessment that long-term employment prospects in the United Kingdom will be greater within the EEC than outside it.

Mr. Hattersley:

The Government believe that membership of the EEC is in the best interests of the British people. These include the achievement and maintenance of a high and stable level of employment.
