Letter outlining the opinion of the European Parliament’s Political Affairs Committee, 3 March 1983

In its advisory opinion of 3 March 1983 on the procedure for a revision of the treaties, the European Parliament’s Political Affairs Committee expresses its concern at the possibility of allowing a constituent element of a Member State to withdraw from the Community. It sees this as a dangerous precedent that may weaken Member States’ commitment to further integration. Although the parliamentary committee does not oppose granting Greenland ‘overseas country and territory’ status, it invites the Council to conduct a detailed analysis of the consequences of this withdrawal process.
