EEC, treaty of accession to:
‘On 22 January 1972, the treaty of accession to the EEC (European Economic Community was signed in Brussels by Britain, Denmark, Ireland, and Norway. This was a great personal achievement for Edward Heath who had given priority to securing EEC membership on taking office in June 1970. Whilst treaty of accession had been agreed in Brussels, it still had to be voted into law in Westminster before Britain could formally join the EEC (See also, *European Communities Act, 1972)’.
