"Mr President, I felt obliged to vote for the motion of censure because of the Commission's incompetence and lack of financial control as manifested in the whole Eurostat affair. It is indeed bizarre that the only person detained in connection with this sorry episode is the journalist who exposed it. I also took the opportunity to register my disapproval of the way the Commission has deliberately ignored the will of this House with regard to aid for hospitals in Belarus, which are woefully ill-equipped to treat the cancers – particularly in children – which have occurred as a direct result of the Chernobyl disaster. Two years running we voted to allocate resources from underspent budget lines to buy this much-needed equipment. So far not one penny has arrived. My constituents in Scarborough and Whitby and I are appalled that money languishes in accounts in Brussels when children are dying of diseases that could be treated."@en1
