SUMMARY OF THE DETAILS OF THE 26 JUNE CAP SETTLEMENT
These notes summarise the legal text arising from the political settlement of 26th June 2003. This text, DS 228/03, was released on 7th July 2003. This is not yet an adopted regulation, therefore it may be subject to further changes. This document (10 pages) is intended to be shorter and clearer than the legal text and thus helpful and informative but does not claim to be legally watertight. Click here to open the document
