Editorial comments:

Dated 29 June, but covers the whole two days of the Council. Read other documents selected from this file. The full file from which this item is taken can be seen here - FCO30/6306. A long "informal record" of the Council also survives in FCO files, available here. There is also a letter by Robin Renwick on "the atmospherics". No formal minutes are supposed to be kept by the Council itself, although an informal “proces-verbal” may exist in the archive of the European Council in Brussels.
