The subject of this article is a substantial one, bursting with theoretical and practical problems, but it is of course much narrower than the survey of the Communities in the spring of 1966 which Mr. Thompson presented to the conference. That survey was made in the light of the six months crisis created by the absence of the French from the work of the institutions of the Economic Community. The resistance of the French to certain central aspects of the development of the Community institutions, particularly to what they described as the developing "style" of the Commission, was set out in a memorandum of ten "proposals" that soon came to be called, irreverently, the decalogue, of which the fifth, sixth, and seventh proposals, set out below, were concerned with Foreign Relations.
