Article – Regional funding: MEPs come to the defence of financially troubled countries
MEPs have come out against controversial Commission plans to make it more difficult for financially troubled member states to get a share of €336 billion earmarked to support regions. On 11-12 July the regional developed committee voted on proposals setting out how money from the EU's cohesion policy to support regions should be allocated in 2014-2020. The committee vote was about determining the Parliament's negotiation position on this in talks with the Commission and the Council.
