OPINION OF THE Committee on Budgets (2.4.2019)

for the Committee on Constitutional Affairs

on the draft Council decision amending the Statute of the European Investment Bank - Request to launch the Article 308 procedure

(07651/2019 – C8‑0149/2019 – 2019/0804(CNS))

Rapporteur for opinion: Eider Gardiazabal Rubial

(Simplified procedure – Rule 50(1) and (3) of the Rules of Procedure)

SHORT JUSTIFICATION

On 11 March 2019, the EIB submitted to the Council a request to amend Article 4 (Paragraph 1) and Article 9 (Paragraph 2) of its Statute.

This follows the procedure laid down in Article 308 TFEU according to which “The Council acting unanimously in accordance with a special legislative procedure, at the request of the European Investment Bank and after consulting the European Parliament and the Commission [....] may amend the Statute of the Bank.”

The aim of the targeted amendments proposed by the EIB is to adapt the Statute of the Bank to reflect an increase in the EIB’s subscribed capital by Poland and Romania.

The Committee on Budgets notes that this capital increase compensates only marginally the reduction in the capital of the EIB due to the departure of the United Kingdom. The Committee on Budgets underlines that to preserve the EIB’s ability to achieve its policy objectives, the aforementioned capital shortfall should be fully compensated.

******

The Committee on Budgets calls on the Committee on Constitutional Affairs, as the committee responsible, to propose approval of the Council draft.
