This article deals with the decision taken by the Court of Justice of the European Union in European Commission v. United Kingdom ("Final Losses") (Case C-172/13), published on on the 3 February 2015. This case is in some ways a follow-up to the ECJ's decision in Marks & Spencer (Case C-446/03) and comments on whether the legislative amendments introduced by the United Kingdom are sufficient to ensure compliance with EU law. After illustrating the case, arguments of the parties and decision of the Court, this Opinion Statement focuses on selected critical points from the Court's decision and Advocate General Kokott's Opinion
