Strengthening the role of national parliaments is one central demand in the UK’s agenda in re-negotiating the terms of its EU membership. In addition, Parliament’s control over EU decision making promises to be an important battleground of debate in the referendum campaign. The House of Lords EU Committee published an important report on the question in March 2014.
A common claim is that national parliamentarians have a better sense of the citizens’ concerns than their counterparts in the European Parliament, and should therefore play a greater role in EU decision-making. But would this improve democratic control?
