Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform
Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals
We will now deal with No. 7, report on decisions regarding scrutiny of EU proposals. This item is purely technical as the joint committee wishes to read into the public record the recommendations of the sub-committee on EU scrutiny and put on record the decision of the joint committee in regard to these recommendations. The following COMs were dealt with today: COM (2013) 547 - a proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on payment services in the Internal Market and amending Directives 2002/65/EC, 2013/36/EU and 2009/110/EC and repealing Directive 2007/64/EC, and COM (2013) 550.
