The majority of MPs voted against the UK remaining a member of the European Atomic Agency Community (Euratom) when withdrawing from the European Union and against treating leaving Euratom separately from leaving the European Union.

MPs were considering the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill[1].

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Nuclear Collaboration and stated:

  • “(1) Nothing in this Act shall affect the UK’s membership of the European Atomic Agency Community (Euratom).
  • (2) Notwithstanding the provisions of any other Act, Her Majesty’s Government shall treat the process of leaving Euratom as separate to that of leaving the European Union

Explanatory notes to the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill[2] state the EU includes Euratom:

  • "The power that is provided by clause 1(1) applies to withdrawal from the EU. This includes the European Atomic Energy Community (‘Euratom’), as the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 sets out that the term "EU" includes (as the context permits or requires) Euratom (section 3(2)). "

The Euratom programme focuses on[3]:

  • nuclear fission and radiation protection
  • fusion research aiming at developing magnetic confinement fusion as an energy source.
