The House of Lords is to debate the European Commission's Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) which will set the spending priorities for the EU from 2012 to 2020 on Tuesday 19 June.
The debate follows a report on the MFF from the EU Select Committee, which concluded that the EU must show budgetary restraint to reflect the austerity measures in place across Member States. The Committee called for cuts to the budget proposals, in particular in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and also concluded that the EU has failed to make the cse for the introduction of a Financial Transactions Tax (FTT).
