Answer of the European Commission
Decision date: 28/05/2014 Official documents related to the decision:
In the Communication adopted on 28/05/2014, the Commission explains that it has decided not to submit a legislative proposal, given that Member States and the European Parliament had only recently discussed and decided EU policy in this regard. The Commission has concluded that the existing funding framework, which had been recently debated and agreed by EU Member States and the European Parliament, is the appropriate one. See press release.
