Question for written answer
to the Council
Rule 130
Dominique Martin (ENF)

 Subject:  Statements by the President of the Eurogroup on bank rescues and employment
 Answer(s) 

On 9 November 2017, at a hearing before Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs, the President of the Eurogroup, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, referred to the (21%) unemployment rate in Greece and acknowledged that in ‘almost all the European countries […] banks were saved by the taxpayers at a huge price’.

What were the measures that the Eurogroup President took to enable banks throughout Europe to be saved at the expense of taxpayers?

What was the impact of that sacrifice in terms of employment in Europe?

What measures has the Eurogroup President taken to ensure that taxpayers are reimbursed and that employment recovers?
