This week in the Committee on Budgetary Control, 5 Commissioners with the biggest responsibilities were questioned and an exchange of views was held on the 2003 Discharge, including the ECA Annual Report 2003.
On Monday, at the hearing with the Commissioners for Administrative Affairs, Audit and Anti-Fraud and for Financial Programming and Budget, Titford signed in, stayed for a short time, but left before the debate with the commissioners. Mote stayed and made his usual accusations, but left within the first hour when the Commissioner for Agriculture was being cross-examined.
Neither MEP was present for the hearings with the Commissioner for Regional Policy and the Commissioner for Employment and Social Affairs.
In other words, 5 Commissioners were cross-examined on the accounts and UKIP didn't bother to stay and listen.
