Commission acts on laggards [UK] [SLO]
The EU Commission has decided to refer the United Kingdom and Slovenia to the European Court of Justice for partial or non-transposition of the Pensions Directive into their respective statute book. This follows its earlier reasoned opinion and is a swift consequence of those two countries not responding to the Commission's challenge. The other nine countries (Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Italy, Lithuania, Slovakia, Spain) at least seem to have sent a response, to which the Commission will react in the near future (via IPE).
