It is the obligation of the Member States to ensure that their legislation is in conformity with the provisions of
Community law in general. Provided that Council Directive 93/104/EC of 23 November 1993 concerning certain
aspects of the organization of working time, the so-called working time directive (1) is correctly implemented, it
is for the national authorities to monitor and enforce the national measures implementing the Directive.

The Commission is currently undertaking a thorough examination of the national measures with a view to
presenting a report on the implementation of this directive.

(98/C 354/193) WRITTEN QUESTION E-1669/98


by Monica Baldi (PPE) to the Council
(2 June 1998)

Subject: Reintroduction of Latin into the school curriculum

After a long period in which it was no longer taught in many schools, Latin is coming back into vogue,
particularly in a number of European countries − such as Germany, Belgium, Finland and Norway- now
experiencing a revival of interest in the language that, for centuries, was the vehicle of European culture.

In Italy the Minister of Education, seeking to redefine the curriculum taught to children up to the end of
compulsory education, has spoken of a Europe that includes the aspect of Latin culture.

What could the Council do to ensure that, in all the countries of the European Union, Latin is included on the
curriculum taught to children up to the end of compulsory schooling, as many European intellectuals have been
demanding for so long?
