Adoption of budgets

La solicitud fue parcialmente exitosa.

Dear Council of the EU,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Council Rules on adoption of the budgets of EU institutions (role of Council, role of Parliament) and on budgetary discharge. I refer to a document which could help me to understand if the powers of EP on budgetary matters are equal to powers of Council. My attention was trapped by this Council letter http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/720/r...
Thank you very much.

Yours faithfully,

A.J. Ross
