– Before the vote on paragraph 9:


  Vittorio Agnoletto (GUE/NGL).(IT) Mr President, I propose adding the following text to the end of paragraph 9: ‘deplores that the Italian Government has not yet paid the EUR 260 million it owes for the 2006-2007 quota to the Global Fund To Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and invites the Italian Government to settle this debt shortly’.

– Before the vote on paragraph 45:


  Maria Martens (PPE-DE). – (NL) Mr President, I will read the text in English:

(NL) … and then a section will be deleted. The section that is going to be deleted reads as follows:
