There was a press release from the EU Commission today that caught my eye via the Albion Alliance presents site, which is a source for raw no spin EU related information.
The press release, which I doubt you will find any reference to in the UK press, was issued by Internal Market and Services Commissioner Michel Barnier who said:
It’s essential that European rules aimed at making the Internal Market work are implemented in Member States – in time and properly.
The report provides an overview of Member States’ compliance with the implementation and application of Internal Market law, with a target of less than 1% of directives, regulations and opinions remaining outstanding to be transposed into National laws.
In total, 18 Member States meet the 1% target of which 8 improved or equalled their transposition deficit compared to six months ago: Denmark, Malta, Slovakia, Finland, Slovenia, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The UK Coalition government has been speeding up the implementation of EU law in the UK. So much for a Eurosceptic Tory party eh.
