La Commission a également décidé d'émettre un avis motivé au Luxembourg en vertu de l'article 228 (ancien article 171) du traité CE pour ne pas s'être conformé à un arrêt de la Cour de justice européenne concernant une Directive portant adaptation de la Directive 90/220/CEE au progrès technique.

    La Commission européenne a décidé, en application de l'article 228 (ancien article 171) du traité, de poursuivre son action en justice contre le Portugal pour non-exécution de deux arrêts de la Cour de justice européenne concernant le non-respect par le Portugal d'une Directive européenne sur les rejets de mercure dans l'eau ainsi que d'une Directive sur la qualité des eaux superficielles. En même temps, la Commission a également décidé de notifier un avis motivé au Portugal pour non-respect de la Directive européenne sur les substances dangereuses.

    The European Commission has decided to take further steps in legal actions against Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom for non-respect of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive. Concerning Spain, the Commission decided to make an application to the European Court of Justice for non- conformity with the Directive. At the same time a Reasoned Opinion will be sent to Spain for failure to submit the Accesso Norte al Puerto de Algeciras express road project to an assessment. Concerning the United Kingdom, the Commission decided to make an application to the Court for failure to comply with the Directive's provision regarding international consultation.

    La Commission européenne a décidé d'adresser un avis motivé à l'Espagne pour non-exécution d'un arrêt de la Cour de justice européenne concernant la législation communautaire relative aux piles usées.

    [06] Guinea-Bissau : humanitarian aid worth euro 2.9 million

    The European Commission has approved humanitarian aid worth euro 2.9 million for Guinea-Bissau. The aid, managed by ECHO, the European Community Humanitarian Office, will assist those affected by the war that broke out in June 1998. The funding will be spent on two priorities : repairing houses before the rainy season, providing accommodation for over 100,000 people, and providing food aid and basic health care for those affected by disruption of the harvest because of hostilities. ECHO's partners for this six-month plan are European non governmental organisations : Comunità Internazionale Volontari Laici-Cuneo (LVIA), OXFAM-Belgique, Caritas Deutschland, Dan Church Aid, Gruppo Volontario Civile (GVC), la Croix Rouge espagnole, Nederlandse Organisatie voor Ontwikkeling (SNV) et Associazione Volontari per il Servizio Internazionale (AVSI).
