Spending questioned

 Spending questioned

An English member of the European Parliament is seeking to discover how much EU taxpayers’ money has been spent so far this century in trying to get people to quit smoking.
Without giving a preamble to his question, Tim Aker asked the European Commission to ‘set out, broken down both by organisation and year-by-year since 2000, just how much money has been paid by the Union under whatever budget heading to stop smoking?’
The Commission is due to reply in writing.
