Sorry. I mistyped this [ Charlie McCreevy's ] sentence.

It reads:

   "Should you decide to propose amendments, the Commission will take 
the utmost account of them, in full respect of our commitments under the 
framework agreement."

I wonder if this 'framework agreement' is the same thing as the 
'conciliation process' ?

The text resulting from conciliation is then presented to the EP, which must vote either "yes" or "no" to the whole text, no amendments are possible. If yes, it's adopted, if no, it's totally scrapped.
