Implementation of the directive on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography (A8-0368/2017 - Anna Maria Corazza Bildt)

14-12-2017

Exploitation of children and child pornography is a growing tragedy that must be stopped. I voted in favour of the directive combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography. The lives of the innocents must be protected.

Deliberations of the Committee on Petitions 2016 (A8-0387/2017 - Notis Marias)

14-12-2017

I feel as if relationships with European Ombudsman are of utmost importance. However, I could not support this resolution for many reasons, including but not limited to the fact that I felt the stance taken on certain EU nations was not strong enough. I look forward to continued work to resolve these issues moving forward.

A European Strategy for Low-Emission Mobility (A8-0356/2017 - Bas Eickhout)

14-12-2017

I voted in favour of this resolution because I believe firmly in the protection of our environment. This resolution lays out an effective plan to reduce carbon emissions through transportation which will have positive effects on the environment and on the health of our constituents.

State of play of negotiations with the United Kingdom (B8-0676/2017, B8-0677/2017)

13-12-2017

I voted against the resolution on the state of play of negotiations with the United Kingdom. The resolution as it stands now will change almost nothing about the relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom. They would receive all the benefits of being part of the EU without contributing to the EU. This would set a dangerous precedent.

Objection to an implementing act: use of phosphoric acid – phosphates – di – tri – and polyphosphates (E 338-452) in frozen vertical meat spits (B8-0666/2017)

13-12-2017

I voted in favour of the resolution on the draft Commission regulation regarding the use of phosphoric acid in frozen vertical meat spits. It is in the interest of all citizens of the EU that these regulations need to be met. The use of dangerous chemicals and preparation techniques must be stopped in order to protect people’s health.

Annual report on the implementation of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (A8-0350/2017 - David McAllister)

13-12-2017

I believe that showing the strength and pooling in of our resources of the European Union is the best formula for achieving success in our foreign policy. I am proud to vote in favour of this new EU Common Foreign and Security Policy. This policy outlines the importance of maintaining a strong bond and sense of unity between the member states when facing threats to the EU in the international theatre, and this I proudly support it.

Annual report on human rights and democracy in the world 2016 and the EU policy on the matter (A8-0365/2017 - Godelieve Quisthoudt-Rowohl)

13-12-2017

I am a firm believer in the importance of promoting democracy and fostering the protection of human rights across the globe. However, I could not support this resolution because it includes a section on reproductive and sexual rights, which are red line issues for me. That being said, I reaffirm my devotion to the importance of democracy and the rule of law across the world.

Hong Kong, 20 years after handover (A8-0382/2017 - Alyn Smith)

13-12-2017

I voted in favour of this resolution because I feel that maintaining good trade relations with Hong Kong is of utmost importance for the European Union moving forward. Hong Kong is a large trading presence in the Pacific, and it is within the interests of the European Union to provide an effective framework for how to maintain good relations for the long run. I am happy to support this legislation to further ties between the two of us and I look forward to a successful partnership.

Establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the Member State responsible for examining an application for international protection lodged in one of the Member States by a third-country national or a stateless person (recast) (A8-0345/2017 - Cecilia Wikström)

16-11-2017

. ‒ I voted in favour of the proposal introducing a regulation regarding international protection for stateless persons residing in Member States. Creating a safe asylum for refugees in danger is a responsibility of each of the EU’s Member States.

EU-New Zealand Partnership Agreement on Relations and Cooperation (Consent) (A8-0327/2017 - Charles Tannock)

16-11-2017

. ‒ The European Union has been part of fruitful cooperation with New Zealand which has benefitted both partners. I voted in favour of the agreement recognising the high level of cooperation between the EU and New Zealand, and willing the partnership to expand in the future. New Zealand and the EU have strong ties based on similarities in culture, politics, and the economy. Deeper partnership and cooperation will further strengthen these ties and encourage innovation, political dialogue and a stronger fight against crime.
