HC Deb 11 June 1980 vol 986 cc213-4W
Mr. Renton

asked the Lord Privy Seal what initiatives he will be discussing with his EEC counterparts in regard to follow- ing up some of the recommendations of the Brandt report.

Sir Ian Gilmour

We are in constant touch with our Community partners on the whole range of North/South issues. The Luxembourg European Council on 27–28 April took note of the Brandt report and expressed the view that it might usefully be taken into consideration in the drafting of the European position in the context of North/South relations. Consultations with our Community partners will thus cover questions arising from the report's recommendations.
