Question for oral answer O-000060/2013

to the Commission

Rule 115

Sharon Bowles

on behalf of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs


  Subject:  Future legislative proposals on EMU

 Answer in plenary 

As regards the proposals expected following its communications COM(2013)0165 and COM(2013)0166, the Commission is asked to answer the following:

Can it provide an update as to when it expects to publish legal proposals following from each of the two communications?

Can it clarify whether it thinks these communications go far enough in terms of creating a genuine EMU, and the extent to which they are a transposition of parts of the fiscal compact into EU law?

Can it clarify the legal bases and legislative procedures it intends to use?

Can it clarify what the legal nature of the contractual agreements is expected to be within the proposed Convergence and Competitiveness Instrument (CCI)?

In proposing the CCI, an instrument that cannot be large enough to finance all the structural reforms necessary in the Member States, has the Commission already explored which reforms should get priority treatment, and why?

Can it clarify how it intends, in the forthcoming legislative procedure, to take account of Parliament’s role, both as co-legislator and as regards practical accountability for decisions taken within the established framework?
