BRUSSELS, Belgium — The European Union's 20-member executive commission plans to vote Tuesday on General Electric Co.'s $41 billion purchase of Honeywell International Inc., barring any last minute proposals or withdrawal of the merger, EU officials said Monday.

The EU is widely expected to reject the deal at its meeting in Strasbourg, France.

"It's on the agenda and they will vote Tuesday," said EU spokesman Michael Tscherny.
