Labour MEPs vote against calls to reject EU budget

STRAS VOTEFollowing the vote in the European Parliament today on the Multi-Annual Financial Framework (the EU seven year budget), Glenis Willmott, Leader of Labour’s MEPs, said:

“Labour MEPs today voted against calls to reject the MFF budget deal. Instead we supported the view that restraint needs to shown in the current financial climate.”

“Although we fully support measures to boost jobs and growth by focusing spending on research and development, infrastructure and combating youth unemployment, we believe this must be done through efficient and effective spending.”
