Official Journal L 156 , 21/06/1990 P. 0008 - 0008


COUNCIL DECISION of 29 May 1990 amending Decision 84/636/EEC establishing a third joint programme to encourage the exchange of young workers within the Community (90/268/EEC)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 235 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas the Community is called upon to take practical measures to help young workers;

Whereas it is the responsibility of the Member States, pursuant to Article 50 of the Treaty, to encourage the exchange of young workers as part of a joint programme;

Whereas Decision 84/636/EEC of 13 December 1984 (4) establishes a third joint programme to encourage the exchange of young workers within the Community;

Whereas the Council has also adopted the Youth for Europe action programme under Council Decision 88/348/EEC (5);

Whereas the European Council, at its meeting on 28 and 29 June 1985, adopted the conclusions of the ad hoc Committee for a People's Europe recommending the promotion of youth exchanges within the Community and the establishment of a genuine network of exchanges in each Member State and between the Member States;

Whereas it would seem appropriate to provide for the Council to examine the Commission's proposal for a new programme to encourage the exchange of young workers by 31 March 1991 and whereas the third programme ends not later than 31 December 1991; whereas it would appear to be necessary for the new programme to become applicable by 1 January 1992,

HAS DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Sole Article

Article 12 of Decision 84/636/EEC is hereby replaced by the following:

'Article 12

1. The Council shall examine by 31 March 1991 the Commission's proposal concerning a Council Decision establishing a new joint programme to encourage the exchange of young workers within the Community.

2. The third joint programme to encourage the exchange of young workers within the Community shall end on the day preceding the day on which the Decision referred to in paragraph 1 takes effect and in any event by 31 December 1991.'

Done at Brussels, 29 May 1990.
