HC Deb 23 November 1978 vol 958 cc692-3W
Q5. Mr. Tim Smith

asked the Prime Minister if he has discussed with the EEC Heads of Government the likely consequences if the United Kingdom does not join the proposed European monetary system.

The Prime Minister

Heads of Government will consider the proposed European monetary system at the meeting of the European Council in Brussels on 4th and 5th December. No doubt the discussion include the consequences of one or more countries not joining from the outset if that appears probable.
