In sketching out the contemporary features of Whitehall's way of organising for Europe, this chapter concentrates on the three key organisations and the actors connected to them that are responsible for coordinating the handling of EU business above and across departments. These form the hub of the EU policy-making system. Initially, the chapter presents an outline of the contemporary structure and operation of this hub. The second half of the chapter considers the main structural and operational changes to it that have taken place since accession in 1973. The EU policy-making network can be defined in a general sense according to its membership but at any particular time according to the business being handled.

Keywords:   Whitehall, EU policy-making, 1973 accession, Europe
