UKIP responds to EU Court of Auditors annual report


Published

UKIP MEP and member of European Parliament Budget Control Committee, Jonathan Arnott today said:

"The auditors' report shows that last year's massive increase in errors and fraud in the EU budget was no one-off but part of a systemic failure.

"We've got multinationals claiming small business relief, farms claiming buildings as grazing land and officials pocketing 5 times the going rate for their jobs.

"The EU's budget is now riddled with an error rate of almost 5%. That's three times as much money as the UK is being expected to hand over to the EU on December 1st.

"Any small business acting in such a manner would be closed down, but apologists for the EU look the other way when confronted with the evidence of mismanagement and fraud."
