This chapter examines the United Kingdom's first two attempts to join the Community. As regards the first attempt in 1961–3, parliamentarians were in no position to appreciate the legal implications of membership since the landmark European Court of Justice (EJC) cases on supremacy and direct effect had not then been decided. However, by the second application in 1967, the two ECJ doctrines had been firmly established in Van Gend en Loos and Costa v ENEL, and one might assume that parliamentarians would recognize their significance.

Keywords:   United Kingdom, Europe, Van Gend en Loos, Costa v ENEL
