359 views

Tthe United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway and Denmark signed the accession treaties to the EU at the Palais d'Egmont. For the United Kingdom, the majority of the important issues had been solved, principally the case of the Commonwealth and the free circulation of industrial and agricultural products, the freedom of movement of capital, the sterling balance, tariff quotas and a number of problems relating to the institutions, the ECSC, Euratom and the Community's contractual obligations. For Irleand, agreements were reached on questions relating to fishing and veterinary legislation. However, some issues still need to be resolved in the area of the car industry, imports and exports and the movement of capital.

The negotiations with Denmark went on a consistent basis and generally along the lines of those of the United Kingdom. Solutions were found to the particular problems for Greenland and the Faroe Islands in the fishing sector.

Norway agreed all the transitional provisions of the conference. Solutions were needed for questions relating to Norwegian agriculture and fisheries.
