This chapter explores the way in which the EU has impinged upon the inner core of departments most engaged in EU policy-making in UK central government. It prioritises certain parts of the Whitehall European policy-making network. These categories are: an inner core of ministries with extensive involvement in the EU: DEFRA, the Treasury and the DTI; other London-based ministries, which have varying degrees of involvement in EU business; and the ‘territorial’ ministries prior to devolution and subsequent arrangements in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland thereafter.

Keywords:   UK central government, EU, Whitehall European policy-making, territorial ministries
