§ Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Lord Privy Seal if the Government are ready to ratify the agreement between the European Economic Community and Zimbabwe; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir Ian Gilmour
The text of the agreement is currently being printed. When that has been done, and before the United Kingdom ratifies the agreement, the text will be laid before the House in accordance with the Ponsonby rule, as will an Order in Council under section 1(3) of the European Communities Act 1972 to give effect to the agreement.
