During Parliament’s first plenary sitting of October, MEPs will take stock of the progress in the Brexit talks, as well as address cybercrime, tax fraud and Ryanair’s flight cancellations.
A draft resolution on the progress in the first four rounds of Brexit talks with the UK will be voted on on Tuesday. The EU has stated it wants to see significant progress on three specific issues before it starts discussions on the future relationship, namely citizens’ rights, the financial settlement, and Ireland.
Also on the agenda next week is the establishment of a European public prosecutor’s office, the increase in cybercrime, air passenger rights and the EU's asylum policy. The six nominees for the 2017 Sakharov Prize will also be presented to a number of parliamentary committees.
