Die Mitglieder können eine schriftliche Erklärung dazu abgeben, wie sie im Plenum abgestimmt haben. Artikel 183 GO

Aufstellung der Liste der Drittländer, deren Staatsangehörige beim Überschreiten der Außengrenzen im Besitz eines Visums sein müssen, sowie der Liste der Drittländer, deren Staatsangehörige von dieser Visumpflicht befreit sind, mit Blick auf den Austritt des Vereinigten Königreichs aus der EU (A8-0047/2019 - Sergei Stanishev) EN  
 

. – I abstained on this legislative report. Whilst I fully support – and want – visa-free access to the EU for UK nationals after we withdraw from the EU, alterations to the text by the European Council made this report impossible to support. The reason is that, without a mandate from Parliament, the Council added text to state that Gibraltar is a ʻcolonyʼ of the British Crown. This is not only factually incorrect, as Gibraltar is designated as a British Overseas Territory, but is also highly insulting to its people, who have, in two referendums, overwhelmingly voted to remain British. I also strongly objected to the procedures employed by the institutions to instigate this change, which included unjustly removing a British rapporteur from the report and refusing to allow a full debate or amendments to be tabled. For these reasons, and whilst I would have liked to support the report, I abstained.

Leitlinien für beschäftigungspolitische Maßnahmen der Mitgliedstaaten (A8-0177/2019 - Miroslavs Mitrofanovs) EN  
 

. – I voted against this legislation. Employment policies should be left entirely to the Member States. There is no need for EU involvement and this is a gross violation of the internal policies of the Member States.

Durchsetzungsanforderungen und spezifische Regeln für die Entsendung von Kraftfahrern im Straßenverkehrssektor (A8-0206/2018 - Merja Kyllönen) EN  
 

. – I voted against this report as it is part of the mobility package. The mobility package has been rushed through committee and is in no way ready, and should not have been presented to Plenary.

Tägliche und wöchentliche Lenkzeiten, Mindestfahrtunterbrechungen sowie Ruhezeiten und Positionsbestimmung mittels Fahrtenschreibern (A8-0205/2018 - Wim van de Camp) EN  
 

. – I voted against this report as it is part of the mobility package. The mobility package has been rushed through committee, and is in no way ready and should not have been presented to Plenary.

Anpassung an die Entwicklungen im Kraftverkehrssektor (A8-0204/2018 - Ismail Ertug) EN  
 

. – I voted against this report as it was looking to harmonise the road transport sector. Issues from Member State to Member State differ and a one—size—fits—all philosophy just will not work.

Gemeinsame Vorschriften für den Erdgasbinnenmarkt (A8-0143/2018 - Jerzy Buzek) EN  
 

. – I voted against this legislative report as I am against further EU harmonisation and against giving more power to the Commission in the energy field.

Europäischer Meeres- und Fischereifonds (A8-0176/2019 - Gabriel Mato) EN  
 

. – I oppose this legislation because it funds the destructive EU common fisheries policy into the next decade.

Mehrjahresplan für die Fischereien, die Grundfischbestände im westlichen Mittelmeer befischen (A8-0005/2019 - Clara Eugenia Aguilera García) EN  
 

. – I oppose this legislation because it carries forward the damaging, destructive EU common fisheries policy.

Erhöhung der Sicherheit der Personalausweise und der Aufenthaltsdokumente, die Unionsbürgern ausgestellt werden (A8-0436/2018 - Gérard Deprez) EN  
 

. – I voted against this legislative report. Whilst I support in principle the idea of strengthening the security of identity documents to protect them from counterfeiting, I oppose the EU’s harmonisation of these documents. Furthermore, I also believe that Member States should have the right to choose both whether to include a person’s gender on these documents and how this appears on the document. For these reasons, I voted against.

Sicherheitsmanagement für die Straßeninfrastruktur (A8-0008/2019 - Daniela Aiuto) EN  
 

. – I voted against this report because the EU is looking to harmonise such things as road signs and road markings. There is no definition as to what will be the accepted norm and the UK has the best road marking and sign posts in Europe and in no way would it be acceptable to lower our standards.
