 Subject:  Extension of measures to relocate asylum-seekers from Italy and Greece
 Answer in writing 

In its resolution of 18 May 2017 entitled ‘Making relocation happen’, Parliament, having taken note of the ‘unfulfilled commitments of Member States to solidarity and responsibility sharing’ (as of 9 June 2017 only 20 869 people had been relocated), urged the Member States to fulfil their obligations and relocate asylum-seekers from Greece and Italy until such time as all those eligible had been relocated in an effective manner.

The resolution also made the point that Member States, far from being freed from their legal obligations after 26 September 2017, would still be required to relocate all eligible applicants who had arrived up to that date. Given that ‘the Council has committed itself to the target of 160 000 relocations’, Parliament called on the Commission to propose an extension whereby the relocation measures would remain in force until the recast Dublin Regulation had been adopted.

1. What action will the Commission take on the resolution of 18 May 2017, in particular as regards the extension of the measures to relocate persons from Italy and Greece?

2. How and when should such an extension be implemented?
