EC Membership and the Judicialization of British Politics

Danny Nicol

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines parliamentary discourse during the period between accession on 1 January 1973 and the Second Reading of the Merchant Shipping Bill on 28 January 1988, the legislative genesis of the Factortame saga which culminated in House of Lords approval of the ECJ's supremacy doctrine. It also asks whether the initial experience of membership led to a greater awareness of the immense constitutional change to which parliamentarians had unwittingly acquiesced.

Keywords:   parliamentary discourse, accession, Merchant Shipping Bill, Factortame, ECJ
