HC Deb 25 January 1978 vol 942 c678W
57. Sir A. Meyer

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what current proposals he has for strengthening political co-operation within the EEC.

Dr. Owen

I am satisfied with the vigorous way in which political co-operation is evolving. Its strength lies in its practical and flexible response to developments. I see no need at present to put forward new proposals for strengthening it.
