David CASA : Γραπτές αιτιολογήσεις ψήφου 

Οι βουλευτές μπορούν να υποβάλουν γραπτή αιτιολόγηση της ψήφου τους στην ολομέλεια. Άρθρο 194 του Κανονισμού

Κατάσταση της εφαρμογής της νομοθεσίας για την καταπολέμηση της νομιμοποίησης εσόδων από εγκληματικές δραστηριότητες (B9-0045/2019, B9-0046/2019) EN  

I voted in favour of Resolution B9-0045/2019 because of the need to strengthen AML legislation in the EU. The EU must be more effective in combating money laundering. When institutions fail to perform their duty, it is investigative journalists and whistle-blowers that end up on the front line exposing wrongdoing – often placing themselves in great danger. This must change.

Σχέδιο διορθωτικού προϋπολογισμού αριθ. 1/2019: πλεόνασμα από το 2018 (A9-0005/2019 - John Howarth) EN  

. ‒ I voted in favour of the report on the Draft Amending Budget (DAB) 1/2019 (A9-0005/2019). The report once more reasserts the long-lasting position of the European Parliament that it should be possible to reuse any revenue resulting from fines, or revenue related to late payments, without a corresponding decrease in GNI-based contributions.

Σχέδιο διορθωτικού προϋπολογισμού αριθ. 2/2019: ενίσχυση βασικών προγραμμάτων για την ανταγωνιστικότητα της ΕΕ: «Ορίζων 2020» και «Erasmus+» (A9-0004/2019 - John Howarth) EN  

. ‒ I voted in favour of Draft Amending Budget (DAB) 2/2019 (A9-0004/2019) in order to provide an additional EUR 100 million to Horizon 2020 and Eramus+, as agreed by Parliament and the Council in last year’s budgetary conciliation. Horizon 2020 and Eramus+ are two vital programmes that will have a major impact on research into climate issues, furthering our higher education and improving the quality of our vocational training.

Κινητοποίηση του Ταμείου Αλληλεγγύης της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης για την παροχή βοήθειας προς τη Ρουμανία, την Ιταλία και την Αυστρία (A9-0002/2019 - Siegfried Mureşan) EN  

I voted in favour of the Mobilisation of the European Solidarity Fund in order to provide relief to recent emergency situations in Romania, Italy, and Austria. In the summer of 2018, severe rains ravaged the North East of Romania, causing significant damage to infrastructure and private households.
In the autumn of 2018, intense weather occurrences struck nearly all regions in the North and South of Italy, resulting in the loss of 34 lives and 1 missing person. During the same period, particular regions in southern Austria were affected by the same storm. As a Union, it is our duty to provide assistance and show solidarity to our fellow Member States in a time of crisis. I believe that this Fund will provide the aid that is so desperately needed in Romania, Italy, and Austria.

Σχέδιο διορθωτικού προϋπολογισμού αριθ. 3/2019: πρόταση κινητοποίησης του Ταμείου Αλληλεγγύης της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης για την παροχή βοήθειας προς τη Ρουμανία, την Ιταλία και την Αυστρία (A9-0006/2019 - John Howarth) EN  

I have voted in favour of Draft Amending Budget No 3/2019 in order to mobilise the European Solidarity Fund to assist Romania, Italy and Austria. This budget will enable the mitigation of damage caused to infrastructure and private households by severe weather events.

Kινητοποίηση του Ευρωπαϊκού Ταμείου Προσαρμογής στην Παγκοσμιοποίηση - EGF/2019/000 TA 2019 - Τεχνική βοήθεια με πρωτοβουλία της Επιτροπής (A9-0001/2019 - Bogdan Rzońca) EN  

I voted in favour of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (A9-0001/2019) to support creation of additional assistance for employees that are being negatively impacted from drastic structural changes in the world trade patterns. The goal of this fund is to finance monitoring and gathering of data, as well as to create a knowledge base interface and to advise Member States regarding EGF. This Fund is important for workers as it decreases unemployment and encourages global growth while simultaneously supporting regional jobs for European Union citizens.

Αποχώρηση του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου από την ΕΕ (B9-0038/2019, B9-0039/2019) EN  

I voted in favour of resolution B9-0038/2019 as this resolution has been worked on as an agreement of various groups as an acceptable consensus. It takes into consideration the importance of maintaining the principles of the Good Friday Agreement in the island of Ireland, opens the door to a responsible deadline extension for the UK Government and reasserts the position of the European Union to maintain its readiness to let the UK have an orderly Brexit if its Government wishes to act towards one. I join the rest of the members of the EPP Group in upholding this responsible consensus.

Έναρξη της αυτοματοποιημένης ανταλλαγής δεδομένων σχετικά με τις άδειες κυκλοφορίας οχημάτων στην Ιρλανδία (A9-0003/2019 - Juan Fernando López Aguilar) EN  

. ‒ I voted in favour of the Report on the draft Council implementing decision (A9-0003/2019) in order to allow Ireland to receive and produce personal data with the intention to streamline automated consultation of vehicle registration data. The goal of this decision is to expedite cross-border cooperation with the purpose of combating terrorism and cross-border crime. Ireland has met all the necessary provisions outlined by the Council. I believe that through this report, we are increasing Ireland’s and the European Union’s security by creating more safety precautions.
