EU budget deal will mean vital investment for East Midlands

STRAS VOTE.cropLabour MEPs have voted to support a deal on Europe’s new long-term budget to last from 2014-2020.

Glenis Willmott, Labour MEP for the East Midlands, said: “Although the deal is not perfect, it will still provide vital funding, helping to create jobs and growth.”

“There will be resources to fight youth unemployment, carry out vital medical and scientific research, as well as undertake projects in transport, energy and telecommunications.

“Here in the East Midlands, we know how urgently such financial support is needed.

“We must ensure that our region gets its fair share, and the next step in that process, now Europe has agreed the overall budget, is to make sure Britain makes use of all the funds available to us.

“We will be watching very closely to see the decisions the Tory-led government takes on this.”
