Glaustai 19-10-2016

On 26 October 2016, the European Parliament is due to decide whether and how to amend the Council's position on the 2017 draft EU budget put forward by the European Commission. The report prepared by the Committee on Budgets reverses all the cuts proposed by the Council in September and further increases allocations in a number of priority areas. In addition, the motion for a resolution puts the 2017 EU budget in the context of the revision of the Multiannual Financial Framework currently being discussed, looking at the broader challenges that the European Union is facing.
