Council Question Time

  President. − As the author is not present, Question No 17 lapses.

Question No 18 by Lidia Joanna Geringer de Oedenberg (H-0559/07)

Subject: The European Court of Auditors

The Maastricht Treaty of 1992 significantly changed the EU’s institutional framework, incorporating into it the European Court of Auditors (Article 7 of the Treaty). By making the Court of Auditors one of its fundamental institutions, the Union demonstrated the importance it attached to transparency and the need to improve its work.

The Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe() also changed the institutional framework, excluding from it the Court of Auditors, which then came under ‘other institutions and advisory bodies’ in Title IV, Chapter II of the Treaty.

The ongoing work on a new treaty does not involve plans to amend the ‘institutional framework’, resulting in a deterioration of the status of the European institutions’ external auditor. Given that the Union should be improving its accountability to citizens, can the Council explain its decision to lower the status of the Court of Auditors?
