§ Q11. Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Prime Minister what consideration she has given to the White Paper on the completion of the internal market which was prepared by the European Commission at the request of the Fontainebleau summit; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
Much of the White Paper accords with our own objectives for the completion of the Common Market. The Milan European Council endorsed these objectives as a high priority. Some of the other Commission proposals such as those on tax approximation and the abolition of frontier controls involve obvious difficulties for all member states. The European Council remitted the question of tax approximation for further study by the Council of Ministers for Financial Affairs.
