 Subject:  Provisional results of the relocation of persons in need of international protection
 Answer in writing 

On 9 November 2016, the Commission published its communication on the Seventh Report on relocation and resettlement. The Commission expresses mild satisfaction with the speed at which relocation is being conducted, but a closer reading of the available statistics show that in reality this is happening far too slowly. There are problems with the rate of the pledges being made, since not all the countries concerned have made relocation pledges or have not done so at a frequency that will enable the allocation quota targets to be attained.

More specifically, it is stated in the third paragraph of page six of the report, that Austria and Hungary continue being the only two countries that have not submitted any relocation pledge nor relocated anyone who is in need of international protection.

1. In view of these circumstances, what concrete measures will the Commission take to speed up the rate and frequency of the relocation pledges made by the Member States?

2. What concrete measures, including invoking Article 258 TFEU, will the Commission take to ensure that Austria and Hungary start to duly meet their obligations in respect of relocation?
