Question for written answer E-003307-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
José Manuel Fernandes (PPE) , Paulo Rangel (PPE) , Álvaro Amaro (PPE) , Cláudia Monteiro de Aguiar (PPE)

 Subject:  Common Demographic Policy

In her first address to the European Parliament, Ursula von der Leyen warned about the demographic challenge facing the Union: the brain drain, migration and, above all, an ageing population accompanied by low birth rates.

The President-elect even proposed the creation of a specific demography portfolio. In view of the above, will the Commission say:
1. Is it considering moving forward with a common demographic policy?
2. What provisions of the Treaty of Lisbon could underpin this policy?

In particular, what role can the European Parliament play in this policy?
