Question for written answer E-004632-18
to the Commission

 Subject:  European Commission in Brussels: no canteen for 2 600 children
 Answer in writing 

Since the beginning of the school year in September 2018, the canteen at the European School in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, attended by children of Commission and Parliament staff in Brussels, has been closed. The reason for this is the poor planning of refurbishment work. Instead of the work being carried out during the two-month-long school holidays, it began when the school reopened in September 2018. As a result, 2 600 children have missed out on hot meals for several weeks now. Some of these children are as young as three years old.

The Commission is responsible for managing the school.

Should European citizens have faith in the ability of the Commission to organise the lives of half a billion inhabitants and create new industries and jobs when it cannot even manage a school canteen?

Can the Commission say what measures it intends to take to find a quick solution to this problem?
