Statement by President Barroso at the death of former Commissioner Bruce Millan

Commission President José Manuel Barroso issued the following statement this evening:

"It is with great sadness that I learned today of the passing of the former British Commissioner for regional policy and cohesion, Bruce Millan. The current negotiations for the Multi-Annual Financial Framework are a good reminder of the debt that the European Union owes to the remarkable work of Bruce Millan. He made a major contribution as British Commissioner and was a staunch defender of the benefits that cohesion policy can bring to all parts of the European Union. I know from my own country, Portugal, the positive changes that he helped to create. On behalf of the European Commission I would like to extend my condolences to his family".
