    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 2) CU WILSON SOF: IT WAS NEVER ORDAINED FROM ON HIGH THAT THERE SHOULD BE THREE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE-AS WAS RECENTLY SUGGESTED IN ONE OF THE MORE FAR-SEEING ARTICLES I READ IN A CITY JOURNAL - A DRIVE TO CREATE A FOURTH COMMUNITY -- A TECHNOLOGICAL COMMUNITY TO POOL WITHIN EUROPE THE ENORMOUS TECHNOLOGICAL INVENTIVENESS OF BRITAIN AND OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES SO THAT WE CAN ENABLE BRITAIN ON A COMPETITIVE BASIS -- NOT A PROTECTIONIST BASIS -- A COMPETITIVE BASIS TO BECOME MORE SELF-RELIANT AND NEITHER DEPENDENT ON IMPORTS NOR DOMINATED FROM OUTSIDE, BUT BASING ITSELF ON THE CREATION OF COMPETITIVE INDIGENOUS EUROPEAN TECHNOLOGICAL INDUSTRIES. AND I CAN THINK OF NOTHING, MY LORD MAYOR, THAT WILL MAKE A GREATER REALITY OF THE WHOLE EUROPEAN CONCEPT THAN THIS SUGGESTS. AND IF THIS IS ACCEPTED, IN THIS FIELD OF TECHNOLOGICAL COOPERATION NO ONE HAS MORE TO CONTRIBUTE THAN BRITAIN."
