Labour MEP Glyn Ford submitted a written question to the European Commission, asking how the €162,387,985 EU Solidarity Fund (EUSF) money should be spent. I’ve twice posted about this matter before, when it looked like the Treasury would try to keep 2/3 of the money for its own uses to make up for reductions in the UK rebate. The response from Danuta Hübner, Regional Affairs Commissioner, states: “Any amounts not spent or spent for ineligible operations will be recovered by the Commission”. So the Commission will demand the cash back if it’s not used for flood aid. Now over to the MEPs in the areas that were flooded to make sure that happens!
