Talks on EU 2013 budget collapse in disarray

5 years ago107 views

Talks on the European Union's budget for next year have collapsed in acrimony in Brussels.

Negotiators for EU governments and the European Parliament did not even discuss 2013 after rowing over extra funding for this year.

The Commission and Parliament want to increase the 2013 budget by almost 7 per cent.

Most governments want to limit the rise to under 3 per cent.
