The essay focuses on the role of the British Parliament in the EU decision-making process by examining the work of the House of Commons and House of Lords in the scrutiny of the European acts and the exercise of the subsidiarity control. The author examines, in particular, the reasoned opinions produced by Westminster in the area of Freedom, Security and Justice: this is an extremely interesting point of view, in the light of the impact that European acts in this area have on fundamental rights and national sovereignty. The involvement in European affairs is also considered from the point of view of the dialogue between Parliament and Government (with particular regard to the mechanisms that ensure that the Government honors its scrutiny obligations to the Parliament) which, even in this context, is considered of primary importance in the British system. The paper concludes with a brief comparison between the British and Italian models of Parliamentary participation in EU affairs; finally, the essay analyses the participation of Westminster in the reform of the “early warning system” and the recent European Council’s decisions on the role of national Parliaments in the context of the “Brexit”.
