(2002/C 115 E/187) WRITTEN QUESTION E-2867/01

by Jonas Sjöstedt (GUE/NGL) to the Commission
(17 October 2001)

Subject: Commission projects to strengthen sport

According to Dagens Nyheter of 24 September 2001, the IOC signed a cooperation agreement with the
Commission in September 2001on ‘Sport, schools and the Olympic ideals in Europe’, the aim being to
promote sport’s ethical values amongst European schoolchildren. This is intended to help combat bribery
and doping scandals in sport.

Dagens Nyheter reported that three pilot projects are to begin, in France, the Netherlands and Germany. In
France, for example, the aim is to try to get 500 school classes to illustrate the Olympic ideals through art,
whilst Dutch schools are to adopt a global approach and discuss the Olympic ideals in their history,
geography and economics classes.

How much money are the above-mentioned projects going to cost the Union’s budget?

Answer given by Mrs Reding on behalf of the Commission

(30 November 2001)

The Honourable Member is referring to the action to promote the Olympic ideals in schools, which was
launched on 14 September 2001 by the Commission in conjunction with the International Olympic
Committee. The aim is to promote the ethical values of sport among European schoolchildren. Initially,
pilot actions will be organised with the French, Dutch and Italian Olympic Committees. Depending on the
results of the evaluation which will be carried out, the action could then be extended to all Member States.

The budget for the project is € 753 215, of which the Commission will contribute € 195 215.

(2002/C 115 E/188) WRITTEN QUESTION E-2869/01

by Jorge Hernández Mollar (PPE-DE) to the Commission
(17 October 2001)

Subject: Community approval for the Spain-Morocco labour agreement

The signature of the labour agreement between the Kingdom of Spain and the Kingdom of Morocco on
25 July 2001 in Madrid represents a highly significant step forward in the field of labour relations between
the two countries.

The arrangements introduced under the above agreement on the Moroccan workforce in Spain will affect
migrant workers from the Kingdom of Morocco as Moroccan citizens authorised to undertake paid work
for a third party on Spanish territory.

Given its implications for the remainder of the Community labour market, does the Commission consider
the formal structure of this agreement to be compatible with Community provisions in this regard, and
does it consider that the agreement tallies with a formal legal model with which all Community countries
should comply in order to ensure the homogeneity of Community legal provisions in all the EU Member

Answer given by Mrs Diamantopoulou on behalf of the Commission

(14 December 2001)

Relations between the Communities and its Member States and Morocco are governed by the Euro-
Mediterranean Agreement, which was signed by the parties in February 1996 and which entered into force
in March 2000 (1).
