El seu discurs : [Versió original]

Mr. President, the Council of Europe has played a prominent part in the development of the work whose conclusions I now have the honour of putting before you. It was the first European institution to pave the way for the creation of a European Political Authority. As far back as its First Session in August-September, 1949, the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe declared unanimously that the aim of the Council of Europe was the establishment of a European Political Authority with limited functions but real powers.

From the outset, therefore the Consultative Assembly sought to amend the Statute of the Council of Europe. Its discussions on the need for constitutional changes did not represent a mere splitting of hairs but were a serious attempt to find a formula for a genuine union – and meant continuous investigation of the political possibilities existing in this field.
