It has been cleared with the Minister and with the Law Officers. You will recall that we are committed to a Factsheet on Sovereignty.
We are rather worried about the impact on Parliamentary opinion of Question and Answer No There is no way so far as we can see of softening the wording. The fact Ministerial bureaucracy s influence on policy making the primacy of community legislation cannot be disguised.
But I feel that there is a case for omitting it altogether. If the Lord President agrees with this view, we shall however have to go back to the Law Officers. As usual, time is very short. The proposal is to issue this Factsheet in a join edition with the new Factsheet on the Free Movement of Labour which, as you know, the Department of Employment want us to publish urgently.
Such a debate would be out of place in this Factsheet. It is thought to be more helpful for the Factsheet to single out some of the practical questions which arise in this context and to answer them as simply as possible.
Joining the Common Market would not affect the position of the Monarch. Three of the existing members of the European Communities are Monarchies, and two of the other applicant States are also Monarchies.
Entry into the European Communities would not in itself have any effect upon the constitutional position of the Crown in Parliament. There has been no question of the present members of the European Communities ceasing to be regarded as sovereign independent States because of their membership of the European Communities and they continue, for example, to participte in international organisations such as the United Nations whose membership is open to sovereign States.
Yes, it would strengthened. Inside the Community, the United Kingdom would have influence both on its own account and on its ability to sway decisions of the EEC which, in certain fields, e.
The United Kingdom would, by entering into the European Communities, be undertaking certain international obligations in the fields covered by the European Treaties. The treaties establishing the European Communities are, however, limited to certain economic and commercial affairs and closely related matters: There are some existing treaties in economic and commercial matters the continuation of which would be inconsistent with obligations under the European Treaties.
The United Kingdom would need to, and intends to, secure, with the agreement of the other parties concerned, the termination of these agreements so far as they conflict with the obligations under the European Treaties and, where appropriate, intends to negotiate new agreements in their place.
Article of the Treaty of Rome takes account of this situation. As with any international treaty, the United Kingdom would not in future enter into treaty commitments which were contrary to obligations contained in the Community Treaties to which the United Kingdom would be bound.
These treaties contain no provision expressly permitting or prohibiting withdrawal. Nor do some other important treaties to which the United Kingdom is a party e.
The Community system rests on the original consent, and ultimately on the continuing consent, of Member States and hence of national Parliaments.
Nothing in the Treaties establishing the European Communities requires member States to change the procedures of their legislative bodies. Parliament would continue to exercise control over the actions of ministers; and moreover Ministers would be answerable to Parliament for the paret they and their officials play in the formulation of Community policy.
In legislating, Parliament would need to take account of the obligations assumed by the United Kingdom under the Treaties. Parliament would have to refrain as it does in connection with other treaties from enacting legislation contrary to those obligations.
Yes, Certain provisions of Community Law, primarily regulations made by the Council and the Commission, apply directly as law in each member State; but by far the greater part of our domestic law would be unaffected.
Where instruments are made by the Council of Ministers, the United Kingdom will be represented by a Minister of the Crown who will be responsible to Parliament for his actions.
Members of the United Kingdom Parliament will of course be represented in the European Parliament which is required to be consulted before Community Regulations and Directives involving new policies are adopted.
This would not be consistent with the treaty obligations which the United Kingdom would have assumed. Parliament would have to be willing to give effect, or enable effect to be given, to the Regulation so that it prevailed over the statute: By far the greater part of our domestic law would be unaffected.
The European Treaties are concerned with economic, commercial and closely related matters. Our courts would in certain cases need to refer matters to the European Court of Justice for rulings on points of Community Law.
But otherwise the workings of our courts would be unaffected. A British Minister would be on the Council of Ministers.Many bureaucratic failures can be explained by the bureaucracy’s procedures, including the complexity of tasks it undertakes, and by the political conflicts that ensue when elected officials and interest groups attempt to control bureaucrat’s actions.
The bureaucrat’s policy-making power may have been created by a statute that members.
