HC Deb 29 October 1975 vol 898 c487W
24. Sir John Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Common wealth Affairs if he is satisfied, following the ECSC Conference, with the arrangements for monitoring the actions of the USSR, particularly with regard to Basket 3 of the agreement.

Mr. Hattersley


25. Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the progress being made in implementing the provisions of the conference on security and co-operation in Europe.

Mr. Hattersley

With our friends and allies in the European Community and the North Atlantic Alliance, we have embarked on a detailed study of the implementation of the provisions of the Final Act. The decisions of the conference will generally be implemented by unilateral national action on the part of each participating state. It is impossible, so soon after the Helsinki Summit, to form judgments about the way participating states intend to implement its provisions.
