Description
Harold Wilson on the EEC. He speaks in favour of the UK remaining a member, so long as the terms of entry are right; he says they weren’t right in 1971, but have greatly improved since then, with the Market becoming less bureaucratic and legalistic. It is in the country’s best interests to be a member, he concludes. Male interviewer not identified. Broadcast on ITN News at Ten.
