    PART 1

    ORDINARY BUDGET, SUBSIDIARY BUDGETS – SERVICES, SUBSIDIARY BUDGET OF THE EUROPEAN YOUTH CENTRES, SUBSIDIARY BUDGET FOR PUBLICATIONS AND PROGRAMME OF ACTIVITIES

    The order proposed for the discussion of the budget is:

    1. Presentation by the Secretary General of the draft budget (CM(2001)129 Vol. I), by the Chairman of the Budget Committee of the latter's report on the draft budget (CM(2001)163) and by the Chairman of the GR-AB on the conclusions of the GR-AB.

    2. Adoption of the draft resolution fixing the scale of contributions to the Ordinary, Extraordinary (Head 2142) and Pensions Budgets as from 1 January 2002.

    3. Adoption of the rates of various retainers, honoraria and allowances for 2002.

    The rates proposed are those detailed in Appendix II to CM(2001)129 Vol. I pages 472-473. The Secretary General has included within the draft budget for 2002 proposals to increase the various rates of retainers by 4% for the subsistence allowance and 1.4% for remuneration element.

    The Budget Committee recommended the rates proposed by the Secretary General (CM(2001)163 para 78).

    The Deputies are invited to take a decision on the rates of daily allowances, annual retainers and fees for 2002.

    Annual representational allowances of specially appointed officials

    These allowances are proposed under Head 0101, Sub-head 0000005 of the draft budget (CM(2001)129 Vol. I, page 6).

    The Budget Committee had no specific comments regarding these proposals

    Registration fees for the activities of the European Youth Centres

    The Secretariat proposes unchanged registration fees under Sub-head 9999050 of the budget of receipts (CM(2001)129 Vol. I, page 399).

    The Budget Committee had no specific comments regarding these proposals

    4. Examination of the draft budget

    The Deputies might then examine the budgetary proposals, on the basis of the draft budget, and the report of the Budget Committee.

    The Budget Committee made some recommendations which would involve a change in the appropriations proposed by the Secretary General. These are explained in detail under the relevant sub-heads of the draft budget in the notes below.

    With regard to the proposals contained within the draft budget, the Secretariat wishes to draw the attention of the Deputies to the following additional elements.

    Budgetary preparation

    The budget document has been drawn up by the Secretary General on the basis of the decisions taken by the Deputies during their 758th meeting namely:

    “The Deputies

    1. approved in general the priorities for 2002 and their budgetary implications, as set out in document CM(2001)57 Corrigendum;

    2. decided that the level of member states’ contributions for the Ordinary Budget and the additional resources of the European Court of Human Rights for the 2002 financial year shall be €169 000 000, it being understood that this amount will be apportioned on the basis of Resolution (94) 31;

    3. took note that the Secretary General would prepare the draft budget for 2002 on this basis.”

    Vote I: General Services

    Head 0101 – Secretary General and Private Office

    Sub-head 0000129 - Consultants

    The draft budget proposal for 2002 is for an appropriation of € 99 100.

    The Budget Committee recommended an appropriation of € 49 100 under this sub-head (CM(2001)163 para 26).

    In the light of additional information provided by the Secretary General, the GR-AB recommended that the appropriation of €99,100 under sub-head 0000129 - Consultants be maintained.

    Vote II: Programme of Activities

    At their 765th meeting (19 September 2001), the Deputies invited their Rapporteur on the Programme of Activities, the Ambassador of Norway, to examine the draft Programme of Activities (document CM(2001)113 and Corrigendum), it being understood that the Programme would be examined by the Deputies at the present meeting. The report and conclusions of the Rapporteur following the meeting that he convened on 23 October 2001 and that of the GR-EDS held on 16 November 2001 are contained in document RAP-PROG(2000)CB3.

    As will be seen from the Rapporteur’s report, the Draft Programme of Activities for 2002 attracted general approval regarding both its presentation and its content. Comments and questions raised during its examination were for the most part of a detailed nature and the Secretariat was able to provide the necessary clarifications and answers. At the meeting on 23 October, the Rapporteur noted that the Secretariat (both the Directorate of Strategic Planning and the operational Directorates General concerned) had undertaken to take due note of any comments made and, where appropriate and compatible with the decision framework provided by the Deputies concerning the preparation of the Programme, to incorporate them in the definitive Programme for 2002. The definitive Programme would also incorporate drafting improvements brought about, notably, in the process of elaborating the Evaluation Matrix for 2002 Activities (RAP-PROG(2001)3).

    The Rapporteur also invited those delegations which so wished to submit written proposals to for amendment of the Programme to the Secretariat by 9 November 2001. In all but two instances of such detailed proposals for amendment, the Secretariat will alter the definitive Programme for 2002 accordingly. However on two points raised by one delegation, the Secretariat retains reservations. These concern Programmes 3.d – Data Protection, where the Secretariat proposes to leave the drafting unaltered, and Programme 5.c - Diversity, Tolerance and Cohesion, where the Secretariat proposes the text as it appears at Appendix 3 to the present Notes whilst recognising that this only partially responds to the points raised by the delegation in question.

    Delegations may also wish to note that in some cases, further detailed programming, particularly as regards co-operation activities, has resulted in minor changes to the figures contained in CM(2001)113 Corrigendum. These changes, which do not affect the overall total, appear in bold in the budget tables reproduced at Appendix 2, Table A, page 68 of these Notes.

    In a small number of cases, the implementation of the 2001 Programme of Activities has been delayed due to causes beyond the Secretariat’s control. Consequently, a limited recourse to the provisions of Article 27 of the Financial Regulations is proposed in so that the corresponding appropriations may be carried forward to 2002 to allow these activities to take place, or in some cases be completed, next year. These activities are detailed at Appendix 5 to these Notes, and the table detailing the corresponding carried forward appropriations on page 86.

    Directorate General IV – Heads 1501-1504

    As detailed in CM(2001)57 Corrigendum - Priorities for 2002: Budgetary implications, the Secretary General proposes to include the Cultural and Sports Funds within the Ordinary Budget for 2002 and not to have separate funds to which a grant was made from the Ordinary Budget as in the past.

    The Budget Committee noted this proposal and “The Committee recommended this proposal in the interests of transparency and on the basis that it made sense that the same systems of management, accounting and budgetary control be applied to this area of the programme of activities as is applied to others.” (CM(2001)163 para 35).

    Head 1601 – Common Provisions

    Sub-head 6004900 – Provision for Field Programmes

    The Budget Committee “noted the proposal of the Secretary General to include € 1 500 000 under this sub-head and that any expenditure in this respect would be subject to prior approval of the Committee of Ministers” (CM(2001)163 para 36).

    Vote IV: European Court of Human Rights

    The Secretary General proposes an increase in the budget of the Court for 2002 of a total of € 3 820 015. The most significant increases are under:

    Head 0402: Sub-head 0000003 - Remuneration and accessory charges of temporary staff – proposed increase of € 1 115 500 to allow the court to face up to the structural increase of the volume of work by the employment of 20 lawyers and 5 additional temporary secretaries.

    and

    Head 0405: Sub-Head 0000099 – Allocation to the Special Account “ European Court of Human Rights” – proposed allocation of € 1 956 500 (in comparison with no allocation proposed in the 2001 budget). This appropriation is designed to cover the costs of 25 lawyers, 10 temporary secretaries and 20 trainee lawyers to continue the programme of reduction of the courts backlog. In the financial year 2001 the Deputies approved additional appropriations of € 1 791 200 in order that the Court could implement the programme. These additional appropriations were both external to the Ordinary Budget in 2001.

    Recommendations of the Budget Committee:

    Head 0402: Sub-head 0000003 - Remuneration and accessory charges of temporary staff

    The draft budget proposal is for an appropriation of € 3 158 800 under this sub-head.

    The Budget Committee recommended that the appropriations under this sub-head be increased to € 5 115 300, i.e. an increase of € 1 956 500 coming from Sub-head 0000999 – Allocation to the Special Account “European Court of Human Rights” (see below)

    Subject to the reservations of two delegations, the GR-AB supported the recommendation of the Budget Committee.

    Head 0403: Sub-head 0000209 – Fact-finding Missions

    The draft budget proposal for 2002 under this sub head is € 488 300.

    The Budget Committee recommended an appropriation of € 238 300 under this sub-head, due to “the fact that in 2001 only one such mission had taken place” (CM(2001)163 para 44).

    The Committee therefore recommended that the € 250 000 reduction recommended under this sub-head be frozen within Vote IV and that the appropriations remain frozen “until such a time that the Committee of Ministers decides to unfreeze the appropriations after having received specific proposals relating to its utilisation” (CM(2001)163 para 45).

    Subject to the reservations of one delegation, the GR-AB supported the recommendation of the Budget Committee.

    Head 0405: Sub-head 0000999 – Allocation to the Special Account “European Court of Human Rights”

    The draft budget proposal for 2002 under this sub head is € 1 956 500.

    The Budget Committee recommended that the appropriations proposed under Sub-head 0000999 – Allocation to the Special Account “European Court of Human Rights” should rather be included under Sub-head 0000003 - Remuneration and accessory charges of temporary staff and that the appropriations under Sub-head 00000999 – Allocation to the Special Account “European Court of Human Rights” should be p.m., i.e. a decrease of € 1 956 500.

    The Committee made this recommendation as

    “the Committee was of the opinion that dealing with the backlog was not a temporary measure but was structural in nature.”

    And that “for transparency reasons preferred to see appropriations for staff within the Ordinary Budget and on the specific budgetary lines for staff appropriations” and not within a special account (CM(2001)163 para 46 and 47).

    Subject to the reservations of two delegations, the GR-AB supported the recommendation of the Budget Committee.

    Special Account “Single Court”

    The Deputies’ attention is drawn to the Secretariat proposal to transfer the Vote IV budgetary balance at the end of the 2002 financial year to the special account “Setting-up of the European Court of Human Rights” and to the fact that, in 2002, the Court will have at its disposal resources credited to this special account at the end of the 2001 financial year.

    Additional proposal resulting from the report of the Evaluation Group on the European Court of Human Rights (not submitted to the Budget Committee)

    In the light of the Report of the Evaluation Group (document EG-Court(2001)1 of 27 September 2001), the Secretary General proposes to complete his original budgetary proposals for the European Court of Human Rights, as submitted in the draft budget document, with the creation of two A5 posts and three A2/3 posts as from 1 January 2002. For 2002, it is proposed that these be financed by means of budgetary redeployment within Vote IV.

    Subject to the reservations of one delegation, the GR-AB supported these proposals.

    Vote VII: Others

    Head 0702 – Provision for salary adjustment

    The Secretary General proposes to include in the budget for 2002 a positive provision for salary adjustment in 2002 of € 3 020 000 and a negative provision of € 1 200 000.

    This proposal effectively means that the Secretary General has provided for € 1 820 000 of the forecast salary adjustment in 2002, in comparison with 2001 where no net provision was made for the salary adjustment.

    The Budget Committee recalled its recommendation that the utilisation of negative reserves to finance the salary adjustment should be phased out by 2005 at the latest. The Committee also recalled that the proposal for 2002 was not in absolute value terms in keeping with its initial recommendation relating to the use of a negative provision for salary adjustments.

    The Budget Committee noted in its report the following:

    “The Secretariat recalled that the policy of covering the salary adjustment by means of a negative reserve, and the Committee’s recommendation that it be eliminated over a period of three years, had been based on the expectation that the annual adjustments over that period would remain in the range of 1% to 1.5%. That was not the case for 2002 as the adjustment was expected to be between 3.6% and 4%. Such an increase would be impossible to cover in its entirety by the negative reserve method and the Secretary General had therefore been obliged to find appropriations in the 2002 budget to make a €1 820 000 positive provision (€3 020 000 - €1 200 000). It had therefore proved impossible to reduce the negative reserve at the same time.”

    The Committee recognised that this was an unexpected and probably exceptional situation and in consequence could accept the negative reserve of €1 200 000 for 2002” (CM(2001)163 para 60 and 61).

    Vote IX – Miscellaneous Income

    Sub-head 9999035 - Recoveries

    The Budget Committee “noted that the amount recorded under this sub-head depended upon the number of temporary and permanent posts within the budgets of the Partial Agreements and that in relation to the draft budgets of the Partial Agreements for 2002, it had not recommended approval of two permanent posts and one temporary post which had been proposed.

    The effect of this recommendation on the Ordinary Budget would be to reduce the estimate under this sub-head by € 73 500 (3 x the fixed sum contribution per post € 24 500).”

    The Budget Committee was of the opinion that any imbalance in the Ordinary Budget which would be brought about if its recommendations were followed by the Committee of Ministers could be eliminated by increasing the estimated receipts under Sub-head 9999030 – Interest (CM(2001) 163 para 66).

    Revised budget tables will be presented to the Deputies, if necessary, in the light of the final decisions relating to the creation of posts in the budgets of the Partial Agreements.

    Subsidiary Budgets: Services

    The Budget Committee had no specific comments regarding these budgets.

    Subsidiary Budget of the European Youth Centres

    The Budget Committee had no specific comments regarding this budget.

    The Deputies are invited to refer to document CM(2001)129 Vol. II Addendum, where revised tables and resolutions have been produced in the light of the adjustments made to the Draft Budgets of the Partial Agreements for 2002 in relation to translation, interpretation, document production and distribution, fixed sum contributions to the Ordinary Budget and the rate used to calculate the provision for adjustments to remuneration. These adjustments were foreseen within the preparation of the draft budgets (see Introduction to CM(2001)129 Vol. II, page 5) and result from the application of the prices and costs for 2002 proposed within the Draft Ordinary and Service Budgets for 2002.

    The Budget Committee took note of these adjustments and recommended the appropriations as detailed in the Addendum document.

    At its meeting of 18th October 2001, the GR-AB agreed with the proposal of the Chairman that in derogation to paragraph 3 of Appendix I to Resolution 94(31) the percentage rates of contribution to Council of Europe budgets for 2002 would be expressed to four decimal places. The tables reproduced in CM(2001)119 Revised contain the percentages duly calculated to four decimal places. This document also sets out the revised amounts of contribution due on the basis of the percentages calculated to four decimal places.

    The Deputies should note that the resolutions and appended tables included within the Addendum except for these relating to the Partial Agreement on the European Support Fund for the co-production and distribution of creative cinematographic and audio-visual works “Eurimages”, represent the final budgetary proposals for 2002 of the Secretary General and that the departure point for the examination of the draft budget and the amounts of the budgets on which they are asked to decide are those appended to the draft resolutions for each Partial Agreement in the document CM(2001)129 Vol. II Addendum. The final amounts of contributions subject to the decisions taken when examining the budget sub-head by sub-head for each Partial Agreement are set out in CM(2001)119 Revised.

    The draft budget of the Partial Agreement on the European Support Fund for the co-production and distribution of creative cinematographic and audio-visual works “Eurimages” is the subject of a further addendum CM(2001)129 Vol. II Addendum II, necessary following the accession of Latvia (see page 18).

    PART 10: BUDGET OF THE PARTIAL AGREEMENT ON THE EUROPEAN SUPPORT FUND FOR THE CO-PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF CREATIVE CINEMATOGRAPHIC AND AUDIO-VISUAL WORKS "EURIMAGES"

    The Deputies, in their composition restricted to Representatives of the States members of the Partial Agreement on the European Support Fund for the co-production and distribution of creative cinematographic and audio-visual works "Eurimages" (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey) are invited to refer to the following documents during the budget debate:

      Draft Budget for 2001

      Meeting report of the Budget Committee (September 2001 Session)

      CM(2001)147

    The Deputies are reminded that in accordance with their decision (CM/Del/Dec(2001)718, item 11.5), amending Article 4.2 of the Resolution setting up the Partial Agreement – Resolution (88) 15, that since the Budget year 2002 member states contributions are obligatory and have been calculated by reference to a scale of contributions calculated using the method outlined in Resolution (94) 31 of the Council of Europe, adjusted by certain transitional arrangements recognising the specific nature of this partial agreement. This change was endorsed by the Board of management in December 1999.

    At the 74th meeting of the Board of Management of Eurimages in Antalya, the Board adopted an option for obligatory contributions based upon a total baseline contribution (before the application of the transitional arrangements relevant to the calculation of obligatory contributions adopted for Eurimages) of € 17 605 500, which, after the application of the relevant transitional arrangements gave a total of member states’ obligatory contributions of € 18 728 365, which is the amount reproduced in the Draft Budget for 2002.

    At the same meeting the Board of Management recommended to “the Secretary General of the Council of Europe to accept the adhesion of Latvia, to take effect from 1 January 2002”. The necessary administrative arrangements have now been undertaken and consequently Latvia must be included within the calculation of obligatory contributions for the budget for 2002 (CM(2001)129 Vol. II Addendum).

    A revised calculation of contributions has been prepared using the same baseline amount of € 17 605 500, which was adopted by the Board of Management, which gives a revised total of member states obligatory contributions of € 18 772 446, after the application of the transitional arrangements. A table of member states’ contributions, together with a revised budget table and resolution are reproduced in the document CM(2001)129 Vol. II Addendum II. The effect of including Latvia in the calculation of obligatory contributions sees a small number of states contributions reducing slightly in comparison with the amounts adopted by the Board, and no member states contributions increasing in comparison with the amounts adopted.

    At the meeting of the Rap-AP held on 13 November 2001, two delegations expressed difficulty with respect to their contribution for 2002.

    OBJECTIVE 5
    TO PROMOTE TOLERANCE, SOCIAL COHESION AND SOCIAL RIGHTS

    PROGRAMME 5.c – DIVERSITY, TOLERANCE AND COHESION

    PART I : OBJECTIVES

    Overall objective

    Development and promotion of integration and community relations policies, ordered management of migration flows including improvements to the living conditions of illegal irregular immigrants, improvement of the situation of Roma/Gypsies.

    Introduction to the Programme

    The activities of the European Committee on Migration (CDMG) and its subordinate bodies contribute to the new social cohesion strategy through a holistic approach to integration and community relations including Roma/Gypsy issues.

    They respond to the wishes expressed by the Ministers at the 6th Conference of European Ministers responsible for Migration Affairs (Warsaw, 16-18 June 1996) and follow on from the Conference on Diversity and Cohesion (Namur, Brussels, 7- 9 September 2000) which officially launched the reports on ‘Diversity and cohesion: new challenges for integration of immigrants and minorities’ and the ‘Framework for integration policies’.

    The results of the Conference on “Irregular migration and dignity of migrants: Co-operation in the Mediterranean region”, to be held on 3 and 4 October 2001 in Athens (Greece), will provide lines of enquiry for work on the management of migration flows and the living conditions and basic rights of illegal irregular immigrants (elements 3 and 4).

    The activities on the rights and status of immigrants derive in particular from the Convention on the legal status of migrant workers. They will focus on the migration of workers and the basic rights of illegal irregular immigrants.

    As a result of an increase in staff in 2001, activities to improve the situation of Roma/Gypsies will be stepped up, notably through increased involvement in national and international events relating to Roma/Gypsies. This Programme is substantially financed by the Roma/Gypsies special account.

    (Adopted by the Committee of Ministers

    at the 7..th meeting of the Ministers' Deputies)

    The Committee of Ministers,

    Having regard to the draft Ordinary budget and to the draft Subsidiary budget of the European Youth Centres for 2002 as presented by the Secretary General (document CM(2001)129 Vol. I );

    Having regard to the draft Programme of Activities for 2002 as presented by the Secretary General (document CM(2001)113 and Corrigendum);

    Approves the Programme of Activities for 2002.

    Appendix 5

    ACTIVITIES CARRIED FORWARD

    ORDINARY BUDGET

    SUB-HEAD 23408 COOPERATION ACTIVITIES ………………………€ 49 900

    Following the World Racism Conference (Durban, 31August – 8 September 2001), it had been decided to hold an ad hoc meeting dedicated to European follow-up to the World Conference. This ad hoc meeting had been convened for 3 –5 December 2001 when, on 5 November 2001, the Secretariat learned that, because of late availability in New York of the Declaration and Action Programme documents resulting from the Durban Conference, it was not certain that the General Assembly Resolution on follow-up to the Conference would be adopted ahead of the ad hoc European meeting. In these circumstances, the Secretariat thought it prudent to postpone the ad hoc European meeting until the end of January/early February 2002. In consequence the carry-forward of the € 49 900 set aside for the Council of Europe contribution to this meeting is proposed.

    SUB-HEAD 25408 COOPERATION ACTIVITIES ………………………€ 9 900

    At the request of the Lithuanian authorities, the study visits foreseen for the evaluation of Youth structures and policy in that country have been delayed by some months, as has the preparation of the international expert's report. It is therefore proposed that the appropriations approved for the second study visit ( € 4 500) and for the drafting of the report ( € 2 700) be carried over to 2002.

    Similarly, at the request of the authorities of Andorra, the assistance foreseen for the formulation of a Youth policy in that country has been postponed to 2002. Thus, it is proposed that the corresponding appropriations ( € 2 700) be carried over to 2002.

    EUROPEAN YOUTH CENTRES SUBSIDIARY BUDGET

    SUB-HEAD 1201 EXPENDITURE ON EQUIPMENT, SUPPLIES, MAINTENANCE OF BUILDINGS AND COMMUNICATIONS …………………………. € 45 500

    An amount of € 25 000 was included within the budget of the European Youth Centre Strasbourg for the financial year 2001 for work on "updating of overloaded electrical installations", in particular the renewal of electrical control panels. Following an inspection made by the “Commission consultative départementale de la sécurité et de l'accessibilité du Bas-Rhin”, it became apparent that the works as foreseen would be incompatible with the wider upgrading works called for by that Commission.

    Accordingly, it is proposed that the amount of € 25 000 initially identified for the abovementioned purpose be carried forward to 2002 and contribute to the financing of the wider works recommended by the said Commission.

    Furthermore, an amount of € 20 500 was included within the budget of the European Youth Centres (Strasbourg and Budapest) as "contribution to the establishment and development of a hotel software system". The feasibility study carried out by external consultants “Ariane ingénieurie”, and financed from DIT appropriations, concluded however that it would be wise to include further work on this matter within a wider project concerning information databases and websites of the Directorate.

    Accordingly, it is proposed that the amount of € 20 500 be carried over to the financial year 2002 and included in the financing of the wider project now envisaged.
