parlimentary scrutiny of the EU

An article by EU Referendum on the level of scrutiny givern to EU legislation, the legislation in question being the C[r]AP. The papers that where needed where delivered just 24 hours before the debate and amounted to a total of 448 pages. Many believed that there are good arguements that the deversity of agriculture means that it would be better delt with at a local level, where they know what is correct for their region. Even though nobody understood it, despite the huge amount of paper work provided it was simply passed and will eventually wind up on our statue books without anymore scrutiny, perhaps when they have had more than 24 hours to understand it and been given all the information on it, by the UK parliment.
