Letter to Daily Express on EU funding, 20 january 2011

January 20th, 2011

Dear Sirs,

Your coverage of the National Comptroller’s report on EU spending in the UK has me stumped. Given your paper’s frequent criticism of the way that the EU manages its accounts, I would have expected your support when we make efforts to get our house in order. As 80% of EU spending is done through its Member States, any control system has to concern their management of funds as well. And if mistakes are found, they must be rectified.

Yours faithfully
Jonathan Scheele
Head of European Commission Representation in the UK
