Cost Of EU Reguations

Open Europe press summary reports on this subject and hightlights the fact that a new report from the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions shows that 60 percent of the decisions taken in an average Swedish local authority, and 50 percent of decisions taken in the country’s regions are impacted by the EU. This press summary links to the report and for those who don't speak Swedish a translation (of sorts) can be viewed here - courtesy of Google. They also link to their latest report on this subject, which can also be viewed here.

All of which can but repeat a question asked of our governments many, many times. If our membership of the EU is such a good thing - can we please have a cost/benefit analysis done?

No? Thought Not!
