HC Deb 26 June 1979 vol 969 cc103-4W
Q21. Sir Nigel Fisher

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the low poll for the EEC elections in England, Scotland and Wales, as compared with the much higher poll in Northern Ireland, she will seek to ensure that the next elections for the European Assembly are held under a system of proportional representation throughout the United Kingdom.

The Prime Minister

The Government will play their full part in the preparation of a common electoral system for the European Assembly under article 138(3) of the Treaty of Rome. It remains to be seen whether these discussions will be completed by 1984.
