Renzi says EU must emerge from 'margins of rigour' - update

Debate on strategy to promote growth 'cannot be delayed'

(ANSA) - Rome, October 22 - Premier Matteo Renzi said Wednesday that the European Union had to be less strict in applying budget rules to make room for growth-boosting measures.
    "At the last EU council the word growth returned for the first time after a long debate with the Dutch and the other architects of rigour," Renzi told the Senate ahead of this week's EU summit. "A debate on how Europe must try to emerge from the tight margins of rigour to impose a strategy (of growth) cannot be delayed".
