Europe Day contd.....

The EU has today finally published a consolidated version of the EU Treaties in the Official Journal of the European Union. This incorporates the amendments introduced by the new Lisbon Reform Treaty, which may or may not enter into force on 1 January 2009 depending on whether all 27 EU member states manage to ratify it. So if you have longed to read the Lisbon Treaty but couldn’t find a consolidated version of it, then now’s your chance by clicking here.

It also includes all the various Protocols, Declarations and Annexes.

The House of Lords EU Select Committee has recently published a useful assessment of the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on the EU and the UK in particular, which is worth a look at and can be accessed by clicking here.
