The Finance Ministry said this evening that it was confident that the European Commission would give its final approval for the Budget tomorrow.

Reuters reported earlier today that the Commission would tomorrow tell seven countries including Malta that their 2015 budgets risked breaking EU rules.

The news agency said the Commission would urge all of the countries not to break their budgets, but it would pick out Rome, Paris and Brussels for a second review of compliance in March. 

The Finance Ministry in a statement noted that in the report, Malta was not one of the countries which were likely to be subjected to a second review of compliance. 

"The government is confident, that following the measures announced last week in the Budget for 2015, the risks highlighted by the Commission are being duly addressed, and is confident that there will be no need for further action," the ministry said.
