1.   In the period following the adoption by Parliament of its position on a draft legally binding act, the Chair and the rapporteur of the committee responsible shall monitor the progress of that draft act over the course of the procedure leading to its adoption by the Council, in particular in order to ensure that any undertakings given by the Council or the Commission to Parliament concerning its position are properly observed. The Chair and the rapporteur of the committee responsible shall report back to the committee regularly.

2.   The committee responsible may invite the Commission and the Council to discuss the matter with it.

3.   At any stage of the follow-up procedure, the committee responsible may, if it deems it to be necessary, table a motion for a resolution recommending that Parliament:

-   call upon the Commission to withdraw its proposal,

-   call upon the Commission or the Council to refer the matter to Parliament once again, pursuant to Rule 84, or call upon the Commission to present a new proposal, or

-   decide to take any other action that it deems to be appropriate.

Such motion shall be placed on the draft agenda of the part-session following the adoption of the motion by the committee.
