The relevance of Europe to English Law
European Economic Community established, with free movement, equal opportunities and improved living and working conditions for all European citizens. The founders of the EEC saw the gain in peace, stability, and economic development as outweighing loss of sovereignty.
History of the E.U
EU Law is based on the Treaty of Rome (1957). Since 1957, the European Economic Community now brings together 15 members states. The UK joined in 1973 by passing the European Communities Act 1972 that incorporates the Treaty of Rome into U.K. law, which the U.K. accepts obligations arising under it, or resulting from action taken by the EU institutions i.e. future as well as past EU law.
The general objectives of the EEC under the Treaty of Rome were to promote throughout the community a harmonious development of economic activities, continuous and balanced expansion, and increase in stability, an accelerated raising of the standard of living and closer relations between the states belonging too it.
