September 5, 2014 - Financial & Competition

Jennifer Baker is joined by James Holtum, spokesperson for the ECR Group, to discuss the vote on the 2015 budget draft option.

On Monday 8 September the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee (IMCO) of the European Parliament voted in favour of the draft version of the 2015 EU budget, focusing on enterprise, the internal market, taxation and customs union, and health and consumer protection. Holtum stresses that the European Commission needs to ensure budgetary discipline, which was a problem in the Multi-annual Financial Framework 2007-2013, when the commitments outstripped the available budget.
