DECLARATION BY MR LANGE , CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE ON BUDGETS

" I WOULD ASK YOU FOR A MOMENT'S ATTENTION . I HAVE TO EXPLAIN A PROPOSAL PUT FORWARD BY THE COMMITTEE ON BUDGETS , NAMELY THAT 600 000 000 ECU BE ENTERED AS COMMITMENTS OR COMMITMENT APPROPRIATIONS AGAINST ARTICLE 7 7 2 . OUR AIM HERE IS TO CREATE AN INTEGRATED INDUSTRIAL AREA IN THE COMMUNITY . THE COMMITMENTS ENTERED FOR THIS PURPOSE ARE NOT COMMITMENTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DEFINITION GIVEN IN THE FINANCIAL REGULATION . THEY ARE COMMITMENTS OF A SPECIAL NATURE , AND IN PUTTING FORWARD THIS PROPOSAL THE COMMITTEE ON BUDGETS TAKES THE VIEW THAT THEY MAY NOT BE UTILIZED UNTIL DECISIONS ARE TAKEN ON AN INCREASE IN OWN RESOURCES . IT WILL BE QUITE CLEAR , THEREFORE , THAT THESE COMMITMENTS ARE SEPARATE FROM THE OTHER COMMITMENT APPROPRIATIONS NOW ENTERED IN THE BUDGET . "
