00:02:08 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin Schulz, EP President “We must decide from country to country. It Italy needs more time – my position is quite clear – than Italy has to get more time. If France needs more time, they have to get more time. About the Commission, I’m glad that they understood, better late - hope is not too late - I’m glad that they understood that the low growth rates need nothing more than investments. This is a better way instead of cuts in public budgets, which make the countries and their governments unable to invest in their own economy. With a bit more time, they could, eventually, combine both: budgetary discipline in one hand, and investments on the other one". 00:00:51
