Common Market Adopts Environmental Program

October 19, 1986|Associated Press

BRUSSELS — The European Communities unveiled a six-year program to incorporate environmental protection into their economic and social policies.

Anthony Fairclough, a senior official of the 12-nation bloc, said Friday that environmental issues are no longer optional on the Common Market agenda; they have become an obligation. The program was drawn up after leaders of Common Market countries last year decided to make environmental protection a part of the bloc's founding 1957 Treaty of Rome.
