      “The Committee of Ministers took note of Recommendations 1728 to 1730 (2005) and Resolutions 1472 to 1475 (2005) adopted by the Parliamentary Assembly at its Standing Committee (Bucharest, 25 November 2005).

    The Committee of Ministers brought Recommendations 1728 to 1730 (2005) to the attention of the governments of member states and entrusted them to the competent organs and/or committees of experts for information or comments and/or to Rapporteur Groups with a view to preparing draft replies for adoption at an early date.

    With regard to Recommendation 1728 (2005) on budgetary powers of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, it was aware that a report on institutional balance was under preparation within the Assembly. It therefore proposed to consider the issue of budgetary powers of the Parliamentary Assembly in the context of the more general report on institutional balance.”
