- extracts from the report Giovanni LA VIA (EPP, IT) Background: The EP reminds the Council about the formal engagement it has made in the frame of the MFF 2014-2020 negotiations at the request of the Parliament to ensure as well coverage for the second tranche of outstanding payments so as to ensure the settlement of the payments issue before the new MFF period begins.

00:00:10 SOUNDBITE (Italian): Giovanni LA VIA, (EPP,IT), rapporteur: "We ask the Commission to work so soon as possible they can submit the other amending budget to meet further payment requirements, which we are all aware of, so that we can correctly implement the 2013 budget and to avoid considerable payment requirements hanging over from 2013 and will be carried over to the 2014 budget. In our resolution we powerfully stressed the need for Council to adopt this new budget 2, so as to finance important development, growth, support for young people, help SME's (Small and medium entreprises) policies and make certain that there are no problems in freeing up these payments for the 2013 financial year." 00:00:51
00:01:01 SOUNDBITE (English): Janusz LEWANDOWSKI, EU Commissioner responsible for the EU's financial programming and budget: "We cannot waist Council resources of European budget to pay late interests and hamper the economical development, but not to paying out to the Member states. This is about investment instrument, this is about stability and this is a good message to deliver on time. With both parts, now with 7.3 we are only able to address the pressing needs of this year and to overcome real cash flow problems." 00:00:32
00:01:33 SOUNDBITE (English): Janusz LEWANDOWSKI, EU Commissioner responsible for the EU's financial programming and budget: "With the 2nd tranche what will be called the draft amending budget no 8, for 3.9 Billion, perhaps will make the way towards a consent of the Parliament of the future, let us hope that it should clear the atmosphere before the conciliation for 2014 and I trust this House in sharing the feeling the sense of urgency in delivering what we need to deliver." 00:00:27
00:02:00 SOUNDBITE (Dutch): Jean-Luc DEHAENE, (EPP,BE): "We should vote on the plan of the MFF, however we can only do so once the Council has lift up to a certain commitment and we can't vote on that until we have some guarantees that the Council will indeed keeping this agreement on 2014. However in the forehand I should stress that to other precondition must be complied with, first of all, co-decision is a course the fundamental plan of this legislative procedure here, that must be completed before we vote and it appears that the Council not sticking to its agreement on this. I like to make it clear to the Council and the European Council, which is not in a spirit of co-decision, the European Parliament also has a say on this. " 00:00:52
00:02:52 SOUNDBITE (German): Helga TRÜPEL (VERTS/Ale, DE): "We won't support this because we feel the MFF does not do enough to fight climate change, to address environmental concerns and to lay a sustainable future for European investment. Moreover we just heard how despite the already restricted financial framework the Council intends in 2014 to generate even greater savings when it comes to research, development greater than in agriculture. That is the wrong approach." 00:00:32
00:03:24 SOUNDBITE (German): Helga TRÜPEL (VERTS/Ale, DE): "My group the GREENS will not vote in favour for any amendments unless that shortfall is made up. I hope that the majority of the House will refuse to vote in favour of the MFF until the whole problem is been solved." 00:00:15
