Abstract

This analysis of the attitudes of British Labour Members of Parliament towards European integration focuses in particular on attitudes towards three themes: integrationist policies, the 'national interest' and ideological identification. Based on the results of a survey of Labour MPs, it suggests the importance of the ideology and national interest dimensions to any explanation of their stance towards the operation of the European Community. The discussion also indicates the relevance of the writings of Tom Nairn and the limitations inherent in adopting a framework based on conventional integration theory.
