MEPs to quiz Commissioner Oettinger on new budget portfolio

Three parliamentary committees will quiz Commissioner Günther Oettinger about his new portfolio for Budget and Human Resources, which Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has asked him to take over from former Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva.

After the meeting, the coordinators of the committees for Budgets, Budgetary Control and Legal Affairs will meet separately in camera for an assessment.  A joint evaluation letter will be submitted to the Conference of Presidents (EP President and political group leaders), which will discuss the matter on 12 January.

The written questions and Mr Oettinger’s replies are here.

The meeting will take place in Brussels in the Paul-Henri Spaak building (PHS), room 3C50, on Monday, 9 January from 18:00 to 20:30.
