So let's have a quick audit.
"At European level, we can - and do - adopt common legislation for our common market on the regulation of financial services, on competition policy, on trade, on consumer protection and on other matters."
We can also make use of the EU budget, in particular the structural funds and the research programmes. In all this, the role of the commission is pivotal."He added, "But, key aspects of our economic performance remain essentially a national competence - not least education. If we are to be successful, we need to mobilise all levels of government in a common endeavour."
According to the treaty, "Member states shall regard their economic policies as a matter of common concern and shall coordinate them within the council".
Nation States responsibility.
Agreeing to do the same as everybody else.
Education (common endeavour)
Other matters (undefined)
Glad to have cleared that up.
