European Parliament decision to raise no objections to the Commission delegated regulation of 27 April 2015 amending Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (C(2015)02802 – 2015/2673(DEA))

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission delegated regulation (C(2015)02802),

–  having regard to the Commission’s letter of 3 February 2015 asking Parliament to declare that it will raise no objections to the delegated regulation,

–  having regard to the letter from the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development to the Chair of the Conference of Committee Chairs of 6 May 2015,

–  having regard to Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

–  having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1698/2005(1), and in particular to Article 58(7) and Article 83(5) thereof,

–  having regard to the recommendation for a decision by the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development,

–  having regard to Rule 105(6) of its Rules of Procedure,

–  having regard to the fact that no objections have been raised within the period laid down in the third and fourth indents of Rule 105(6) of its Rules of Procedure, which expired on 19 May 2015,

A.  whereas Article 19(1) of Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 provides for a revision of the multiannual financial framework in the event of the adoption after 1 January 2014 of programmes under shared management for, inter alia, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development in order to transfer to subsequent years, in excess of the corresponding expenditure ceilings, allocations not used in 2014;

B.  whereas the rural development programmes of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Greece, Spain, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, Romania and Sweden and certain regional programmes of Belgium, Germany, France and the United Kingdom were not ready for adoption by the end of 2014;

C.  whereas Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 has been revised accordingly by Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2015/623, which transfers, for the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, the corresponding unused 2014 allocations to 2015 and 2016 expenditure ceilings;

D.  whereas Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013, which lays down the breakdown of Union support for rural development for the 2014 to 2020 period, should therefore be amended accordingly;

E.  whereas the delegated regulation is essential for the smooth and timely adoption of rural development programmes, and whereas it is appropriate that it enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union;

1.  Declares that it has no objections to the delegated regulation;

2.  Instructs its President to forward this decision to the Council and the Commission.
