Text size Aa Aa

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Commission will only react to Italy’s 2019 budget plan when it is delivered to Brussels by an Oct. 15 deadline, a spokeswoman said on Friday.

“The position of the Commission remains unchanged. We will assess the draft budgetary plan for 2019 after its official presentation,” spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud told a regular briefing, adding that Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker had “not yet read a word” of the Italian proposal.
