In addition to the legislative instruments supporting budgetary and fiscal discipline in EU Member States, it will be vital in overcoming the current crisis to restore economic growth and boost the competitiveness of Member States. The single market clearly has a key role to play in this respect, as it has the basic potential to be the engine of growth for the European economy.
1. What is the current situation in individual Member States with regard to the transposition of adopted EU legislation relating to the single market?
2. To what extent is the Commission aware of how the different Member States are actually making progress in transposing such legislation, which will have a decisive impact on their competitiveness and economic growth?
3. Can the Commission compare and submit information on the progress that the 27 different EU Member States have so far made in transposing European law relating to the single market into national legislation? This would ideally be in the form of a table (scoreboard) reflecting the situation both in absolute figures and in percentages.
