(Page 11 col f) Confederation of British Industry views: statement by chairman of steering committee (Page 21 col f) Georges Pompidou praised by German Chancellor for averting European crisis - The summit conference had freed the development of Europe from its paralysing standstill and cleared the way for the broadening of the Community. Willy Brandt concluded "The road is long and remains stony, and decisions which are not always easy will be expected from us. But at the Hague we and our partners at last succeeded in removing those barriers which blocked the way until now". Sir Con O'Neill, Deputy Under-Secretary at the Foreign Office said that Britain accepted "that the economic penalties for us in the short term at least, will be severe." (The Times Page 1 col g)
