The motion was presented by leader of the council, Barry Norton, who explained that the new union would have a much greater role to play in justice, home affairs and foreign affairs and would become responsible for co-ordinating the economic policies of all member states.
Mr Norton was also concerned about the greater role the union would play in local government: 'Locally there are areas of shared competencies, where EU legislation will take precedence over national legislation unless the EU agrees to waive its powers first.
'Shared competencies include justice and home affairs, transport, agriculture and fisheries, energy, social policy, economic and social cohesion, the environment and consumer protection, many of which impact on the residents of West Oxfordshire.
'The limits of these shared competencies under the new European Constitution would be determined by the European Court of Justice not by Parliament.'
Mr Norton went on to say, 'that the government had agreed to hold referendums on devolution, regional assemblies and elected mayors, yet continued to deny the British people a say in this far more important issue.'
There were no votes at the council meeting against the motion.
