EU: Financial Penalties

Volume 698: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether Government departments other than the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have incurred European Union financial penalties since 1993; what the reasons were for such penalties; and what their individual costs were to the Exchequer. [HL1402]

The United Kingdom has never incurred a financial penalty under Article 228 (ex Article 171) of the Treaty Establishing the European Community.
