Heath on the failed negotiations, 1963

These two letters were written by Edward Heath in 1963, shortly after Britain failed to gain entry to the European Economic Community (widely referred to as the Common Market). They express his disappointment, and also show his determination to try again. Heath would have to wait a further 10 years for his dream to be realised and for Britain to be admitted to the EEC.
