Select Committee on European Communities Third Report

APPENDIX 2 (Continued)


The European Court of Justice

The Court wants the IGC to approve powers to allow it to amend its own Rules of Procedure. In our view this is reasonable but the necessary amendment to the Treaty needs to be strictly drafted to ensure that the Court is only able to alter its own procedures and is not enabled to extend its remit or its powers. (265)


The European Court of Justice

The Court was not given power to amend its Rules of Procedure.
