Question for written answer E-005920-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Joëlle Bergeron (EFDD)

 Subject:  Former Commissioners being paid to advise financial corporations
 Answer in writing 

Former EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes, notwithstanding her formal promise made at the time of taking up duties never to take up a post on the board of a financial institution or a multinational corporation after the end of her mandate, has been engaged by the Meryll Lynch bank and the Uber taxi company.

Former Commission President Barroso has just been recruited by the European investment bank Goldman Sachs.

Conflicts of interest cannot be excluded, wrote Le Monde newspaper. And even if this is not the case, such examples of revolving doors for ex-commissioners risk doing even greater damage to the image of the European Union after the UK referendum.

To help Europe restore its reputation and once again become a project that the peoples of Europe can take pride in, does the Commission intend to draw up a code of ethics for its Commissioners that will preclude them from taking up such posts after the end of their term of office as a Commissioner?
