E-010593/2012(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Vassiliou on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-010593/2012

On 23 October 2012 the European Commission asked the Council and the European Parliament as the Budgetary Authority to vote for an additional budget of EUR 9 billion for payments. This was so that the available payment credits more closely correspond to the level of commitments already voted for by the Budgetary Authority in the 2012 budget. In particular, the Commission requested an additional EUR 180 million for the Lifelong Learning Programme to ensure payment needs could be met until the end of the year. The share for Erasmus was estimated at EUR 90 Million. This Draft Amending Budget 6/12 can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/budget/biblio/documents/2012/2012_en.cfm.

With the recent agreement by the Budgetary Authority (http://www.consilium.europa.eu/uedocs/cms_data/docs/pressdata/en/ecofin/134073.pdf) on the Amending Budget 6/2012 and the revised Draft budget 2013 adopted by the Commission on 23 November 2012, the immediate threat has been averted.

The Commission continues to urge the Budgetary Authority to support its proposals for a significant increase in investment for education and training in the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework.
