European Voice reports that MEPs are to discuss increasing their own office allowances by €1,500 a month and adding 150 posts to the Parliament’s payroll in their plenary session next Tuesday. Ahead of that, member states’ ambassadors to the EU will discus proposed changes to the EU’s 2010 budget today, in particular whether to support an increase in the Parliament’s administrative spending for 2010 of €13.4 million.
