Parliamentary questions

E-000585-19
Question for written answer E-000585-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Monika Beňová (S&D)

 Subject:  Anti-harassment code of conduct in the European Parliament
 Answer in writing 

On 31 January 2019, the European Parliament adopted an anti-harassment amendment. The change will become part of Parliament’s Rules of Procedure.

Once the rules come into force, Members will have to sign a code of appropriate behaviour stipulating that Members must refrain from psychological and sexual harassment of any kind. Any Member who does not sign this code will be subject to sanctions and will therefore be unable to participate effectively in Parliament’s work.

Is the Commission willing to follow Parliament’s example and enact a strict code of conduct to deal with harassment in the institution?
