Abstract

The chrono files are composed of notes that White wrote or on matters on which he intervened substantially. The papers refer in particular to his fields of responsibility: budget and financial control, budgetary aspects of the CAP in particular and perhaps the most interesting of all - clearance of accounts, fisheries policy, energy including the Tchernobyl accident, relations with the European Parliament and the Anglo-Irish Agreement. There are some interesting notes about efforts to prepare constructively for the visit of Bob Geldof to the EP - and a draft letter to the Bulletin, pointing out that the Commisson had executed a food relief programme 10 times the total of that achieved by Geldof thereby refuting the criticism that the EC did nothing to aid a famine ravaged Ethiopia.

Administrative and Biographical History

Six chrono files concerning the period when David White was a member of the cabinet of President Jacques Delors. The most substantial work was done from 1985 - 1987.
Notes for the period until end-February include issues such as: budgetary procedure, the clearance of agricultural accounts despite difficulties concerning a Greek issue, fisheries, funding for Northern Ireland after the Anglo-Irish Agreement, problems with EIB projects which had infringed the public procurement legislation. There is also some material concerning the "GRV", the "grande rendez-vous" as President Delors called it, of the institutions and Member States on the budgetary package then in preparation.
