Parliament's reading of the 2019 EU budget

At a Glance 18-10-2018

During the October II plenary session, the European Parliament is due to decide whether and how to amend the Council's position on the 2019 draft EU budget. The report adopted by the Committee on Budgets reverses almost all of the cuts proposed by the Council. Furthermore, it increases appropriations for a number of Parliament's priorities linked to sustainable growth, competitiveness, security, migration and young people, and reduces the EU budget contribution to the financing of the Facility for Refugees in Turkey.
