STEP 5 THE SINGLE EUROPEAN ACT
The 1984 Fontainebleau summit was a turning point in European integration. The European Council resolved the British budgetary question, decided to begin reform of the CAP, approved Spanish and Portuguese accessions and agreed to set up a committee on institutional affairs, chaired by James Dooge. These decisions allowed for a simultaneous progress on the internal market and institutional reforms. Responsibility for their success rested on the European Commission.
