Order of business

  Tilly Metz, on behalf of the Verts/ALE Group. – Thank you Mr President and sorry for starting too early before.

Together with our coordinator, we believe that it is the right time for a debate on authorisations of GMOs. As some colleagues will know, in its last sitting Parliament adopted 36 objections to GMO authorisations.

The resolutions outlined concerns we have surrounding health risks due to gaps in safety assessment, and they also highlighted the Commission’s lack of respect for democracy in the decision-making process.

The Commission continues to authorise GMOs despite lack of support from Member States, and Parliament’s objections.

Tomorrow, the Parliament will vote on three new objections and the new Commission will shortly start its mandate.

This is therefore a good moment for this new Parliament and the Commission to exchange views on this issue. I hope colleagues can support this request.
