This chapter analyses the constitutional consequences of the United Kingdom joining the European Communities (EC), later the European Union (EU), creating a new juridical dimension to the UK constitution, and how Parliament adapted to membership through adapting its structures to enable it to scrutinise and influence proposals for European law. It identifies the problems deriving from the result of the 2016 referendum on leaving or remaining in the EU, the challenges encountered by the May and Johnson governments in seeking to negotiate a withdrawal agreement and achieve parliamentary approval for that agreement and the clash between the outcomes of the 2016 referendum and the general election of 2017.
