Britain in Europe: The Early Years

The European Parliament Information Office in the UK would hosted an audience with Lord Hannay in discussion with John Peet, on the early years of Britain in Europe.
The ongoing controversies about the "repatriation" of powers from Brussels and the EU budget negotiations are nothing new. In fact, the UK has been agonising over these issues since the very start of its membership of the EU.

Based on his recently published memoirs, Lord David Hannay discussed with John Peet key events from the 70's and 80's, such as the 1975 Referendum and the 1984 agreement on the British rebate and how they are relevant to the debate in 2013.

Date |Monday, 21 January 2013
Time | 6.30pm for 7.00 - 8.30pm
Place| Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU
