Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from Rt Hon Douglas Alexander MP, Minister for Europe, Foreign and Commonwealth Office to the Chairman

  On 19 January the European Commission informed Member States of a revised funding amount for the mandate of the EU Special Representative for Moldova. Owing to an error in calculation, the original figure of €0,86 million, outlined in my Explanatory Memorandum (EM) of 19 January 2006, would increase to €1.03 million.

  Regrettably, this change could not be factored into the EM before it was submitted to Parliament. As you are aware, strict time limits are faced to allow proper scrutiny of texts before their adoption at the GAERC.
