e heard a number of things about changes in terminology and the importance of us believing that everyone used to call it the "Common Market" and still thinks of it as a common market. My recollection of the question on the ballot paper for the referendum in 1975 was that it referred to whether we wished to stay in the European Communities, not in the Common Market. Is that the Minister's recollection?
