Question for written answer E-013735-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Jutta Steinruck (S&D) , Josef Weidenholzer (S&D)

 Subject:  European Year 2014
 Answer in writing 
At the start of 2013 the majority of MEPs backed Written Declaration 32/2012 and expressed their support for European Year 2014 for ‘Reconciling Work and Family Life’. The Commission gave its reply to the parliamentary question (E-008093/2013) on this subject just in August, with a commitment to consider carefully themes and content for a possible European Year 2014. In light of the fact that there has been a European Year theme every year since 2003 and that this is a highly successful project, we would like to know:
1. What themes has the Commission considered for 2014?
2. How are the themes being considered assessed?
3. Where can the results of the deliberations on the themes be seen?
4. Why has the Commission decided not to devote European Year 2014 to ‘Reconciling Work and Family Life’?
5. Why has the Commission decided not to arrange a European Year in 2014?
6. Where and when was the official decision made that there would be no European Year 2014?
7. What is happening with the financial resources which were earmarked for European Year 2014?
8. When does the Commission intend to organise a European Year for reconciling work and family life, as requested by Parliament?
