Discharge 2017: EU general budget - European Council and Council (A9-0010/2019 - Isabel García Muñoz)

  Seán Kelly (PPE). – Mr President, it’s clear again that the EU Council have failed once again to provide answers to the written questions that Parliament has submitted, and that the Secretary-General of the Council failed to attend the hearing that was organised. Additionally, the Council did not take into account the recommendations proposed by Parliament in the Discharge resolution on 26 March 2019. This is not acceptable, and this vote will send a needed message to the Council that this matter needs to be taken seriously. The House has a long-standing position that all EU institutions must be transparent and fully accountable to all the citizens of the Union for the funds entrusted to them to perform their duties, and we must take responsibility to ensure that the Council does so. I’m pleased that Parliament is so upright in this regard.
