CRE

The final draft agenda for the April I 2019 sittings (PE 637.886/PDOJ) had been distributed and the following changes had been proposed (Rule 149a):

After consulting the political groups, the President proposed the following changes:

Wednesday

The report by Maria Grapini entitled 'Establishing the 'Customs' programme for cooperation in the field of customs' (A8-0464/2018) (item 38 of the final draft agenda) and the report by Jiří Pospíšil entitled 'Establishing the instrument for financial support for customs control equipment' (A8-0460/2018) (item 39 of the final draft agenda) would be put to the vote during the April II part-session.

Thursday

The recommendation by Jean Arthuis entitled 'Implementation and financing of the EU general budget for 2019 in relation to the UK's withdrawal from the Union' (item 49 of the final draft agenda), which had been included without debate in voting time, had not yet been adopted by the BUDG Committee. It had therefore been withdrawn from the agenda.

The JURI Committee had adopted the 3 reports by Angel Dzhambazki (A8-0185/2019, A8-0184/2019 and A8-0183/2019) on requests for waivers of immunity. In accordance with Rule 9(9), they had been included in voting time on Thursday.

Parliament noted its agreement with the above changes.
