On 2 July 2007 the Council decided to consult the European Economic and Social Committee, under Article 95 of the Treaty establishing the European Community, on the abovementioned proposal.

Since the Committee unreservedly endorses the proposal and feels that it requires no comment on its part, it decided, at its 438th plenary session of 26 and 27 September 2007 (meeting of 26 September), by 163 votes to one with five abstentions, to issue an opinion endorsing the proposed text.


Brussels, 26 September 2007.
