    Background: BRITAIN'S RECENTLY-APPOINTED FOREIGN SECRETARY MR. MICHAEL STEWART, PAID HIS FIRST VISIT ABROAD IN AN OFFICIAL CAPACITY WITH A FLIGHT TO BRUSSELS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY.) THERE HE MET COMMON MARKET REPRESENTATIVES.

    MR. STEWART'S VISIT HAS NOT ACHIEVED THE SUCCESS HOPED FOR. COMMON MARKET SPOKESMEN SAID AFTER HIS MEETING YESTERDAY WITH THE BELGIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, M. SPAAK, THAT THIS AND A "NEGATIVE" SPEECH BY MR. STEWART IN THE EVENING SHOWED THAT BRITAIN FAILED TO UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THE "NEW EUROPE" AND THE IMPORTANCE OF COMING TO TERMS WITH IT.

    DURING THE TALKS, THE BRITISH FOREIGN MINISTER EMPHASISED HIS GOVERNMENT'S VIEW THAT ENTRY AT THE MOMENT INTO EUROPE WOULD NOT BE REALISTIC. BRITAIN WISHED TO KEEP IN TOUCH NOT BY JOINING THE SIX, BUT BY MEETING THEIR REPRESENTATIVES IN THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE AND THE WESTERN EUROPEAN UNION. HE ADDED THAT BRITAIN WOULD HAVE GREAT DIFFICULTY IN ACCEPTING COMMON MARKET RULES.
