Issue linkage and consequent spillover have been characteristic of the development of European Union environmental policy. In addition to the logic of spillover, however, it has also been seen that a series of intergovernmental bargains was necessary, both to give formal place to environmental policy in treaty reforms and to define the substantive scope and concerns that were to fall to the responsibility of the EU. Although these intergovernmental bargains were in one sense simply a formal recognition of the institutionalisation of environmental policy that had taken place since 1972, they can still be regarded, on the other hand, as an important element in their own right, part of the process by which environmental policy measures acquired a range and scope going beyond anything that could be conceivably related solely to the single market.
