Sir Alec Douglas-Home (Lanark)
I think we should have some clarification. The French document, in paragraph 4, on page 10, says:
There will be no commitment"—
from which I take it that there will be no detailed scheme—
except by the signature of a treaty between the States concerned and its parliamentary ratification.
Surely the hon. Member has the safeguard which he wants there? Parliament has to ratify the detailed scheme.
