HC Deb 01 April 1977 vol 929 c299W
Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can now make available a current text of the proposed Sixth EEC Directive on the harmonisation of the basis of assessment of VAT.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

Yes. The Council of Ministers has reached a common position on the Directive, which is now subject to further consideration by the European Parliament before it is adopted by the Council. I am arranging for copies of the Directive, as forwarded by the Council to the European Parliament, to be placed in the Library of the House.
