23-10-2017

During the October II plenary, the European Parliament is due to decide whether and how to amend the Council's position on the 2018 draft EU budget put forward by the European Commission. The report adopted by the Committee on Budgets reverses all the cuts proposed by the Council. Furthermore, it increases appropriations for a number of Parliament’s priority programmes linked to sustainable growth, jobs – particularly youth employment, security, and climate change.
