This dissertation is concerned xd.th governmental economic regulation and intervention in the fields of competition policy, regional policy and industrial rationalisation.

This is followed by an examination of the action by community institutions in the field of industrial rationalisation in the E.E.C.en

The present structure of regional planning machinery in the U.K. is described and certain of the problems associated with it are discussed.

With regional policy in the E.E.C. the examination is primarily concerned with the community instruments for regional development. These are the European Social Fund, the European Investment Bank and the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund. The role of the Commission in co-ordinating regional development in the community is also discussed, particularly with regard to its control over the regional policies of the member states.en
dc.description.abstractThroughout this examination of the constitutional machinery associated with these economically related policies, particular attention is given to the procedural links between the administrative bodies involved. The relationship between administrative and control machinery is also discussed. In conclusion certain suggestions are made for developing constitutional machinery suitable for the three policies of governmental economic regulation examined.en
