Manipulation af kilometertæller i motorkøretøjer: revision af EU's retlige rammer (A8-0155/2018 - Ismail Ertug)

31-05-2018

It is notable that in a plenary session where the EU Parliament is voting on a report on Better Law-making, members are also voting on this own initiative report to legislate for interoperable databases of vehicle mileage within each Member State. Whilst I fully sympathise with those affected by the illegal tampering of mileometers I do not feel that this proposal is consistent with the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality. A European legislative framework in an area where a voluntary platform at EU-level already exists is an example of over-regulation and would introduce a burden on garages and mechanics as well as vehicle owners. It is also the case that an impact assessment on the possible costs of such an administrative burden has not been prepared. There are some areas where EU cooperation is vital and where retaining membership of the EU would be of huge benefit to the country as a whole but this is not one of them. So although I oppose any illegal activity within the second-hand car market including attempts to manipulate a car’s mileage, I will be abstaining on this report because it goes against the Better Law-making agenda.

 

Fortolkning og gennemførelse af den interinstitutionelle aftale om bedre lovgivning (A8-0170/2018 - Pavel Svoboda, Richard Corbett)

30-05-2018

Advocates of Brexit in the UK have long been blaming EU red tape for problems faced by businesses instead of seeing the huge benefits of a fully-functioning single market for the UK economy. It has widely been assumed, despite the great efforts to educate to the contrary, that the Commission in particular is intent on writing unnecessary laws with no consideration of the impacts. Yet the EU’s Better Regulation agenda is longstanding and the aim of ‘doing less and doing it better’ is supported across Member States and across the political groups. Of course, as is also the case for domestic laws, the quality of Union legislation can always be improved and I am fully supportive of the better regulation agenda that has been leading up to the recent inter-institutional agreement on Better Law-Making. It is right that the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality are maintained. Impact Assessments must be comprehensive and timely and we should strive to reduce administrative burdens on businesses by putting an ABS target in place. However, this report includes amendments which distract from the de-regulation focus by introducing a social clause and falling short of reduction targets. I will therefore be abstaining during the vote.

 

Forebyggende foranstaltninger mod anvendelse af det finansielle system til hvidvask af penge eller finansiering af terrorisme (A8-0056/2017 - Krišjānis Kariņš, Judith Sargentini)

19-04-2018

. ‒ I was pleased to vote in favour of this report which reinforces EU rules on anti-money laundering to counter terrorist financing. Stronger rules are necessary for several reasons. Firstly, it is clear that terrorists involved in the 2015 Paris attacks had used prepaid cards which did not require the holder’s identity to be verified. We must make significant steps to close such loopholes to stifle the flow of financing for terrorism and so lowering the threshold for prepaid cards is a positive outcome of these trilogue negotiations.
Secondly, significant resources are lost each year from developing countries in the form of tax evasion and money laundering using anonymous companies and trusts. Efforts to improve cooperation between Member States to better identify beneficial account holders as well as giving reasonable public access to information on the ownership of trusts and companies will provide governments with more tools to fight these complex criminal arrangements. Given the digital nature of our global banking system where geographical borders hold little significance, cooperation between governments is vital. I hope that, despite the UK’s exit from the EU, such cooperation to fight terrorism and the corrupt world of money laundering will continue.

 

Økologisk produktion og mærkning af økologiske produkter (A8-0311/2015 - Martin Häusling)

19-04-2018

. ‒ The organics market is becoming a booming economy with an annual turnover of EUR 2 billion in the UK. London is seeing particular growth as farmers’ markets, ‘veg boxes’ and locally sourced food spring up to cater to city-dwellers who are becoming increasingly interested in where their food comes from and what pesticides and chemicals it might contain. Given the market growth and the high price that organic food can demand it is appropriate to update legislation. However, this regulation as it stands would create a two-tier system for organic food that provides neither certainty for the consumer nor clarity regarding the rules for producers. It could also allow foods which contain traces of pesticides to be sold as organic because they adhere to other sustainable standards. However, for my constituents in London this would be confusing and would dilute the value of true organic products. The agreed provisions simply add to the burden and complexity placed on farmers and producers and do not help consumers make informed choices about their food consumption and for this reason I voted against the report.

 

Vaccinationsmodstand og nedgang i vaccinationsraterne i Europa (B8-0188/2018, B8-0195/2018)

19-04-2018

The constituency of London has the lowest vaccination coverage in the UK and regularly misses the WHO guideline of 95% of children receiving vaccinations. These statistics are very disturbing and have direct social consequences as paediatric diseases which were considered to be eradicated such as measles and rubella are returning. As MEP for London and a medical doctor myself I strongly support the over-arching aims of this resolution to allay concerns about vaccine safety and necessity so that vaccination rates in Europe improve. Vaccines are rigorously tested through multiple stage trials and regularly reassessed and every effort should be made to counter unreliable and unscientific information which damages confidence. However I would be wary of a Europe-wide harmonisation of vaccination schedules as this decision should remain at a Member State level. The suggestion to pool the purchasing power of Member States in order to jointly procure vaccines should be further investigated though, in order to address the disproportionate rise in costs. The UK Government should strongly consider the possibility of involvement in such a scheme despite exiting the EU but of course I would never support compulsory vaccination against parents’ wishes.

 

Oprettelse af programmet Et Kreativt Europa (2014-2020) (A8-0369/2017 - Silvia Costa)

15-03-2018

I am pleased to vote in favour of this proposal to enable the European Union Youth Orchestra to be funded by statute without the need for a call for proposals, given its unique nature, having been founded by a parliamentary act in 1976. However, I am also pleased to see that the amendments make it clear that the orchestra management should continue to make efforts to source funding from elsewhere over the next three years and to ensure high visibility within every Member State. Public funding for the arts is vital, but all cultural organisations should have an equal chance to win grants. Sadly, the EUYO will no longer be based in my constituency of London, and participation of British nationals in future years is entirely dependent on the outcome of Brexit negotiations. This is a stark reminder of the unintended consequences of the Brexit referendum, as talented British musicians are potentially being shut out of career-enhancing opportunities with the best musicians and tutors in Europe. I have no doubt that the world-class orchestral scene that remains in London will continue to thrive, but the EUYO will be sorely missed.

 

Det Europæiske Lægemiddelagenturs hjemsted (A8-0063/2018 - Giovanni La Via)

15-03-2018

The EMA, currently located in Canary Wharf in my constituency of London, performs the vital work of evaluating, supervising and monitoring the safety of medicines within the EU, ensuring that patients from all EU Member States can take medicines with full confidence that they are safe and effective. Cooperation on this level is a shining example of what can be achieved by working closely with our European neighbours – enhanced consumer protection and confidence as well as the reduction of costly red tape for companies which only need to deal with one regulator. Consequently, this vote to change the EMA’s location brings with it great sadness. By leaving the EU the UK loses not only automatic participation in the EMA but also its headquarters and the skilled jobs that were based there. I feel for the many Londoners working at the EMA whose futures are now so uncertain and I sincerely hope that the UK Government will do all in its power to retain associate membership of the EMA. I cannot object to the decision to relocate the EMA to Amsterdam, but a vote in favour would suggest that I see this is a positive move for the UK. As such I therefore abstain.

 

En europæisk strategi for samarbejdende intelligente transportsystemer (A8-0036/2018 - István Ujhelyi)

13-03-2018

I am pleased to vote in favour of this own-initiative report to ensure interoperability between the different intelligent transport systems that are being developed at pace by Member States. It is clear that, as the digital economy continues to expand, the technology needed to create a fully integrated transport system with smart roads and intelligent vehicles is not far off. It is timely, then, that the Commission is working on ways to support this modern industrial revolution by prioritising interoperability across borders. Of course, the challenge of creating an intelligent transport system across Europe is immense and solutions must be found to privacy and data protection issues, cybersecurity threats and the challenges of technical harmonisation. However, if done right, the outcome of EU-wide cross-border interoperability would be very significant, reducing road accidents and streamlining road travel. The UK is a world leader in automotive technology and already a leading partner in CEF and C-Roads projects, working closely with other Member States to develop new transport technologies. It would be hugely disappointing, therefore, if the UK transport system is not able to benefit from inter-connectedness with other European countries. I hope that, after the Brexit negotiations, such close cooperation will be able to continue.

 

Definition, præsentation og mærkning af spiritus og beskyttelse af geografiske betegnelser for spiritus (A8-0021/2018 - Pilar Ayuso)

01-03-2018

. ‒ I am pleased to vote in favour of this technical proposal to align EU legislation on spirit drinks with the Lisbon Treaty. A publicly available and accurate register of geographical indicators will protect producers and ensure that consumers have clarity about what they are buying. However, I do not support the amendment to enable spirits to be made from non-agricultural sources, as this would negatively impact on agricultural producers who have been using traditional methods to manufacture spirits for centuries. Any attempts to undermine the quality of celebrated local products would only damage the spirits industry. This proposal is an example of the huge benefit to UK brands like Scotch Whisky of EU cooperation, which enables businesses to flourish and to sell their products across borders.

 

Obligatorisk automatisk udveksling af oplysninger på beskatningsområdet (A8-0016/2018 - Emmanuel Maurel)

01-03-2018

. ‒ The public outcry against aggressive and complex tax arrangements, whereby profits are moved towards more beneficial tax regimes, is only increasing. Large companies which make millions in profits and yet pay less tax proportionally than those on an average wage provoke public anger and rob the exchequer of revenue for basic services for the whole population. I am pleased therefore that more steps are being taken to close loopholes by sharing information on potentially aggressive tax planning arrangements between Member States.
However, although I support the underlying Commission proposal which would oblige intermediaries who organise tax avoidance schemes to inform the authorities, I abstained on Parliament’s report which adds impractical requirements for Member States and intermediaries. If efforts to stop tax avoidance are to be successful, cooperation between EU Member States must be prioritised so that companies pay their fair share and are not able to hide profits in different corners of Europe under the noses of different tax authorities. It will be vital, therefore, for the UK to ensure that lines of communication between tax authorities remain open following Brexit.
