Juncker’s EU Finance Minister not needed – Hayes

September 13, 2017

The President of the European Commission this morning reiterated calls for an EU Economy and Finance Minister. During his State of the Union address to the European Parliament, Jean-Claude Juncker said such a person should coordinate all EU financing instruments and step in whenever a member state is facing a recession or fundamental crisis. Mr Juncker said the role could be held by an EU Commissioner responsible for economy and finance. However, the Fine Gael MEP Brian Hayes says such a position is not required.
