Question for written answer E-001178-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Jane Collins (ENF)

 Subject:  Brexit negotiations
 Answer in writing 

Given the Commission’s proposal for tracking vehicles across borders as described in COM (2016)0766 and C-ITS, does it envisage the technology being used for incorporating RFID tags?

What infrastructure will be used, and where will the database be kept?

If RFID tags are used in all vehicles, is it not the case that this technology could be used to create a virtual border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland — as has been proposed by UK technology companies — thus removing the need for the so-called ‘back-stop’?
