Draft amending budget No 6/2018: Reduction of payment and commitment appropriations (own resources) (A8-0399/2018 - Siegfried Mureşan)  
 

I voted in favour, as the draft amending budget updates both the expenditure and the revenue sides of the budget to take account of the latest developments. It shows that the implementation of the EU programmes of the current financial framework has reached cruising speed.

Mobilisation of the Flexibility Instrument to finance immediate budgetary measures to address the on-going challenges of migration, refugee inflows and security threats (A8-0455/2018 - Daniele Viotti)  
 

I voted in favour of this report, which is the logical result of the budget 2019 deal.

Mobilisation of the European Union Solidarity Fund to provide for the payment of advances in the EU general budget for 2019 (A8-0453/2018 - Lefteris Christoforou)  
 

I voted in favour because this vote ensures that there are funds available in the European budget to help Member States, which have been struck by a natural disaster, in an even more timely and efficient way.
