§ Mr. Crosland
I cannot yet say. The Council of Ministers itself will next discuss direct elections at its meeting on 3rd and 4th May.
§ 31. Mr. David Steel
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has recently received on the method of electing representatives to the European Parliament.
§ Mr. Hattersley
My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister received representations from a number of sources, including the hon. Member's party, in response to his invitation to the political parties to comment on direct elections. This and other aspects of direct elections will, no doubt, be considered in the Select Committee.
