HC Deb 13 July 1977 vol 935 c194W
37. Mr. Channon

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he had at the recent EEC Summit meeting regarding general compliance with the target date of May/June 1978 for direct elections.

Mr. Judd

As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister told the House on 30th June, the Heads of Government each gave an account of progress in their respective countries. It was clear from this discussion that the United Kingdom is not lagging behind.
