Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 1/2016: Instrument for Emergency Support and Europol

At a Glance 07-04-2016

DAB No 1/2016 deals with two different European Commission proposals: the provision of the initial financial means for the new instrument aimed at delivering emergency support inside the European Union (EU); and an increase in the staffing of the recently created European Counter-Terrorism Centre within Europol. The European Parliament has fast-tracked its examination of the proposals, while the Council also rapidly adopted its own position on the DAB.
