Abstract:

Aims to identify the extent to which the reactions of the European Commission and Member States may justifiably sit alongside the aims of the single market and the wider objectives of the EC. Examines the reactions of Member States and the EC in effecting a ban on the movement of British beef and allied products within the context of the principles of free movement of goods and powers in relation to the Common Agricultural Policy. Confirms that, while first impressions may suggest the response of the Commission and Member States goes to the foundations of the single market, the protection is not absolute. The beef crisis provides the opportunity to examine the freedoms which form the foundation of the single market and, in particular, to identify the sensible limitations of those freedoms in the light of wider Community objectives.
