Former Labour leader and EU Commissioner to address Lords committee on EU audit qualifications

Lord Kinnock, the former leader of the Labour Party, will face a House of
Lord’s committee next week over the the management and audit of the European
Community accounts.

The Lords European Union Committee has been investigating the management of
the accounts. Its sub-committee on Economic Affairs, meanwhile, is looking at
ways in which the European auditing system can be improved.

The Lords committees will be asking Kinnock – a European Commissioner at the
time of the 1999 reforms of Europe’s financial controls in the Prodi commission
– for his insights into why the European Court of Auditors has not issued
positive statement on the European Communities accounts for the past 11 years.
