Question Time (Commission)

  McKenna (Verts/ALE ). I would have liked the Commissioner to be much more willing to disburse budgetary support to a country despite it not being on track as regards certain non-core elements of the IMF/PRGF and where IMF programmes are judged to be too restrictive. The Commission has expressed concern over recent years about the IMF's macro-economic framework for low income countries. From your answer, Commissioner, I did not get the impression that you were saying you would continue to disburse budgetary support. You seemed to say that it would only be in very exceptional circumstances. How exceptional would those circumstances have to be before you would continue to disburse budgetary support?
