EU must raise its standards.

The European Union will not survive unless it improves financial management, English ICA president Dame Sheila Masters told the College of Europe in Bruges this week. She addressed an audience of 300, including the British ambassador to Belgium and senior European Union officials. Dame Sheila said: ‘If the commission can rapidly improve its financial management, introduce 21st century personnel policies and practices – it and other institutions just may have a future. If it cannot improve, I for one do not believe that Europe’s institutions can survive in the new millennium.’
