France's government lodged a complaint on 9 February 2017 with the European Court of Justice over the way the European Union's budget for 2017 was approved.
The French authorities argue against the fact that the document was adopted in Brussels rather than in Strasbourg, which in their view violates the EU treaties.
The problems posed by the monthly commute to Strasbourg have been well known in France. The lack of transport links and hotels is a constant source of anger and frustration for MEPs and their entourages.
