ISSUE OUT OF THEIR HANDS
Britons resigned to market fate
LONDON (/) - Most of the
British seem finally resigned to
a future in the European Com-
mon Market. Many of them are
unhappy about it.
,@ Public opinion polls report that
two thirds or so believe that
Prime Minister Edward Heath
will succeed in leading Britain
into Europe. The same polls in-
dicate that around 60 per cent
oppose the move. The clear in-
ference is that many people be-
lieve the issue is out of their
The most frequent argument
raised against the market is that
it will end Britain's traditional
cheap food policies, and loosen
ties with Commonwealth coun-
tries who stood by the old country
n two World Wars.
This argument ofien is linked
with an almost instinctive sus-
picion of what goes on across the
English Channel in a Europe
where Britain has twice this
century been embroiled in war.
Promarketeers in the letter
folumns of the newspapers are
frequently businessmen or tech-
nocrats. They see advantages in
aligning British industry with the
economies of the nearest neigh-
bors and opening up a tariff free
market of 250 million people.

fear the shorter effect on house-
hold budgets. The price of but-
ter-around 45 cents a pound in
Britain and twice that in France
-remains a powerful influence.
British prices in general are
already nearing European levels,
however. And few Britons realize
that welfare services on the Con-
tinent have in most cases reach-
ed or surpassed British levels.
Here are some sample com-
ments from Londoners:
Helen Dodson, retired secre-
tary: "I suppose we'll have to
go in but prices will shoot up.
If there's any benefit in the
long run, people of my age won't
be here to enjoy it. And the
French attitude to Britain is just
Emily Davies, civil servant's
wife: "I can't make my mind up,
for or against. But I expect
prices will go up and we'll prob-
ably get trouble from the unions.
People work longer hours over
there and our unions won't like
Evelyn Neale, tax officer: "I'm
against it. I don't really know
why. Logically I suppose one
should be for it. It may make us
stronger in the end. But I don't
want to lose all our good New
Zealand and Australian dairy
produce. We get all we need from
France and Holland already."
Dover, the English town near-
est the Common Market - just
22 miles across the channel --
has a special viewpoint on entry.
Its seaport handles five million
Europe bound passengers a year.
If the market brings a channel
tunnel much of this traffic will
bypass the town. Half Dover's
jobs have their source at docks.
Dockworker Peter Jones, 41,
said: "If there's no Common
Market I'm sure there'l be no
tunnel. My job will be safe."
Professional footballer Terry
Adlington, 35, said: "It's so diffi-
cult to find out exactly the true
facts about what entry will cost.
But I think Britain will go in, and
suppose it will be a good thing
in the long run."
Dover's storekeepers have no-
ticed that the weekly invasions
from the Continent to stock up
food and clothing at British pric-
es seem to be falling off.
