Until about 1989, most local authorities were under the impression that the Single European Act had no direct relevance for their work. With the exception of a few departments and some interested individuals, the single European market was perceived as being only of interest to businesses and exporters. Government cutbacks on local government finance had meant that the European Community existed merely as an alternative source of funding. Local government meant ‘local’ interests: any activity outside the borough boundary bore little relation to an individual department's work.
