Parliamentary questions
12 July 2017
P-004723-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Geoffrey Van Orden (ECR)

 Subject:  European Defence Fund
 Answer(s) 

In relation to the European Defence Fund (EDF), would the Commission confirm whether the EUR 90 million promised until the end of 2019 and the EUR 500 million per year thereafter for defence research, and the EUR 500 million for development and acquisition in 2019 and 2020 and the EUR 1 billion thereafter, will be new money requiring an increase in the EU budget, or will it be reallocated from elsewhere in the EU budget?

If the latter is the case, from which other budget lines is it expected that the necessary savings will be made?
