for Question Time at the part-session in April 2008

pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure

by Marie Panayotopoulos-Cassiotou

to the Commission

  Subject: Social security reforms in Greece

 Answer in plenary 

Council decisions and Commission documents repeatedly refer to the need for the modernisation and reform of the Member States’ social security systems, an adjustment to the age of retirement and to the negative repercussions for the economy and society of early retirement.


Does the Commission take part in a consultative capacity in the process of adjustment and does it carry out an assessment of the Member States’ new legislative measures?


The recent reforms of the social security system in Greece fall within the national sphere of competence. Is the Commission, nevertheless, carrying out an assessment of them?
