Missions

SEE ALL

A committee can decide to organise missions to a member state, a country outside of the EU or to international conferences. Missions are undertaken in the exercise of the powers conferred on the committee and are composed of a limited numbers of members of the committee. Committees may also send, for no more than three days, a three-member delegation to agencies for which they are principally responsible. On this page you will find all the available information relating to specific missions.

The Committee on Petitions will conduct a fact-finding mission from 17-18 December 2018 to Valledora, Italy. The purpose of the mission is to investigate concerns about several quarries and landfills located between the municipalities of Alice Castello and Cavaglià (Piedmont Region, Italy). The delegation will meet with local civil and religious authorities, and consult citizens as well as scientific and legal experts before conducting a site inspection in the area concerned.

The delegation will enquire whether there are threats to surface and ground waters, which are claimed to have been caused by leakges from the landfills,and encourage citizens and authorities to act together to seek a solution and prevent irreversible damage to the water sources.
