EMS: Schmidt note of remarks on EMS (at Copenhagen European Council ?dinner) [declassified 2008]

Document type: Declassified documents
Document kind: Memorandum
Venue: Copenhagen
Source: PREM 16/1615
Journalist: -
Editorial comments: The official European minute of Council sessions makes no reference to a discussion of EMS, so it is likely that discussion of EMS took place at the summit dinner on the evening of 7 April. Schmidt’s typed notes were given to the British afterwards and remained for a considerable time the fullest documentation available on the proposal from the German side.
