I outlined my views on discrimination, on whatever ground, when replying to the debate on the Estimate for my Department on the 28th June last. I referred to what I described as discrimination on the...More Button

General guidelines for the development of vocational training at community level were accepted by the Council of the EEC on 21st July, 1971. Following the Summit Meeting of October, 1972, a draft of ...More Button

I presume this will hold but the setting up of the centre by the EEC is at a very early stage. It is too soon to say what guidelines they will set down.More Button
