Parliamentary questions
26 June 2007
E-2529/2007
Answer given by Mr Barrot on behalf of the Commission

The Commission sent a letter of formal notice to the Maltese authorities in July 2006. A reply was submitted by the Maltese authorities in October 2006. However, after having carefully examined this reply the Commission concluded that the concerns raised had not been addressed sufficiently by the Maltese authorities. The Commission, therefore, submitted a reasoned opinion to the Maltese authorities in December 2006. The Maltese authorities replied by a letter dated 30 March 2007. The Commission will take a decision on possible further action after having assessed the information provided in detail. However, as the concerns of the Commission relate to the construction of the tax, it is, therefore, not evident that only a reduction in the level of the tax can be considered as sufficient.
