The World

May 28, 1987

Prime Minister Charles Haughey hailed the outcome after having warned of "economic catastrophe" and possible withdrawal from the Common Market if the voters had rejected the plan, already approved by the 11 other members. Known as the Single European Act, the plan calls for foreign policy coordination and paves the way for a genuinely free market within the bloc by 1992.
