Plenary Session Institutions30-04-2015 - 17:15
 

MEPs called for more measures to prevent the loss of migrant lives in the Mediterranean, including more funding for search and rescue missions, during the plenary session on 27-30 April.

Plenary Session External relations30-04-2015 - 16:27

Members of all European Parliament political groups condemned the recent execution of eight people in Indonesia, and called for an immediate moratorium on the death penalty there. In a debate on Thursday with international cooperation Commissioner Neven Mimica, MEPs stressed that even though they respect Indonesia's sovereignty and its fight against drug trafficking, the death penalty can never be justified.

The EU should use the Milan Expo 2015 to encourage sustainable agronomic practices, promote fairness in the supply chain, and fight food waste and malnutrition, says a resolution voted by Parliament on Thursday, the eve of the official opening of the event. The ultimate aim of these efforts should be to strengthen global food security, it adds. (Read more: Milan Expo 2015: EU must foster global food security, MEPs say )

 

Kenya killings and persecution of Christians

Plenary Session External relations30-04-2015 - 13:18

The EU should launch a military training mission in Kenya and supply equipment to the Kenyan army and police to help halt the spread of the Al-Shabaab terrorist group, say MEPs on a resolution voted on Tuesday. It should also make it a priority to address the persecution of Christians, they add. This follows Al-Shabaab’s 2 April attack on Kenya’s Garissa University, which killed 147 Christian students and injured 79 others. (Read more: Kenya killings and persecution of Christians )

Plenary Session Development and cooperation / External relations30-04-2015 - 13:02

The massacres perpetrated by the terrorist sect Boko Haram in Nigeria were vehemently condemned by the European Parliament in a vote on Thursday. MEPs urge the Nigerian authorities to do their utmost to end the violence and tackle the root causes of the terrorism, including corruption.

Albania and Bosnia & Herzegovina need to resolve domestic differences, say MEPs

Plenary Session Enlargement30-04-2015 - 12:37

Political wrangling held back the progress of reform in Albania and Bosnia & Herzegovina in 2014, say MEPs in two separate resolutions voted on Thursday. Both countries need to strengthen their democratic processes, tackle corruption and put in place professional and depoliticised public administrations. By cooperating to achieve these aims, their political forces can move them closer to the EU, they add. (Read more: Albania and Bosnia & Herzegovina need to resolve domestic differences, say MEPs )

The Parliament will debate on the outbreak of Xylella Fastidiosa affecting olive trees  

Parliament will quiz the Commission Thursday morning on plans to tackle the outbreak of Xylella fastidiosa bacteria, which have infected several thousand hectares of olive plantations in Italy, and prevent it spreading to other EU regions.

Parliament marked the second anniversary of the Rana Plaza textile factory collapse in Bangladesh, which killed over 1,100 people, by welcoming progress made by the EU-led initiative to improve working conditions there. But much remains to be done, including tackling anti-union discrimination and allegedly endemic corruption of health and safety inspectors, it adds, in a resolution voted on Wednesday. (Read more: More must be done to improve working conditions in Bangladesh, say MEPs )

 

Alcoholic drinks should state calorie content, say MEPs

Plenary Session Public health29-04-2015 - 14:37

Plans for labelling the calorie content of alcoholic beverages should be tabled by the European Commission at the latest in 2016, said MEPs on Wednesday. The resolution calls for a new EU Alcohol Strategy focusing on alcohol consumption by minors and EU-wide labelling to discourage drink driving and drinking while pregnant. (Read more: Alcoholic drinks should state calorie content, say MEPs )

 

Migration: Parliament calls for urgent measures to save lives

Plenary Session Immigration29-04-2015 - 14:31
Refugees on a boat on the Mediterranean Sea between North Africa and Sicily who are being rescued by the Italian Navy  

The EU should do everything possible to prevent further loss of life at sea, e.g. by expanding the mandate of “Triton” operation in the Mediterranean to include "search and rescue operations at EU level", says a resolution voted by Parliament on Wednesday. MEPs also call for a binding quota for distributing asylum seekers among all EU countries, bigger contributions to resettlement programmes, better cooperation with third countries and tougher measures against people smugglers. (Read more: Migration: Parliament calls for urgent measures to save lives )

 

EU’s new technology institute and projects must clarify 2013 accounts, say MEPs

Plenary Session Budgetary control29-04-2015 - 13:45

Auditing doubts prompted the European Parliament to postpone approving the spending of EU funds in 2013 by the Budapest-based European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) and two EU/private new technology partnerships, in a vote on Wednesday. MEPs also declined to approve spending by the European Council and the Council of Ministers, due to their persistent failure to supply the necessary figures. Spending by all other EU bodies was granted ˮdischargeˮ approval. (Read more: EU’s new technology institute and projects must clarify 2013 accounts, say MEPs )

New EU forest strategy: better management can boost rural jobs, say MEPs

Plenary Session Agriculture28-04-2015 - 14:01

(Read more: New EU forest strategy: better management can boost rural jobs, say MEPs )

 

MEPs vote for sustainable fishing in the Baltic Sea

Plenary Session Fisheries28-04-2015 - 13:44

A multiannual plan for managing Baltic cod, sprat and herring stocks was approved by Parliament on Tuesday. This is the first such plan under the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), which took effect in 2014. Long-run management, rather than year-on-year planning, should make life more predictable for fishermen. (Read more: MEPs vote for sustainable fishing in the Baltic Sea )

Plenary Session Environment28-04-2015 - 13:41
Agriculture - Harvested grain corn and a flask of corn oil, used both as a cooking oil and a feedstock used for biodiesel  

A draft law to cap crop-derived biofuel production and accelerate the shift to alternative sources was voted by Parliament on Tuesday.

Fish discard ban: MEPs delay sanctions

Plenary Session Fisheries28-04-2015 - 13:37
The Parliament debates on the multi-annual plan for the stocks of cod, herring and sprat in the Baltic Sea and the fisheries exploiting those stocks  

Fishermen will have two years to “adapt” before sanctions for failing to comply with the new fish “discard” ban take effect, under a law passed by Parliament on Tuesday. The draft law, already informally agreed by MEPs and ministers, amends the “omnibus” regulation on arrangements for enforcing the ban. Obliging fishermen to land unwanted catches, rather than throw them back, is a key aim of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). (Read more: Fish discard ban: MEPs delay sanctions )

 

Ships’ CO2 emissions: MEPs approve new reporting rules

Plenary Session Environment28-04-2015 - 13:10

Draft EU rules requiring ship owners using EU ports to monitor and report CO2 emissions each year received the support of the House on Tuesday. The new rules, already informally agreed with the Council of Ministers, will apply from 2018 on to ships over 5,000 gross tons, regardless of the country in which they are registered, as a first step towards cutting their greenhouse gas emissions. (Read more: Ships’ CO2 emissions: MEPs approve new reporting rules )

Automatic emergency call devices in all new car models from spring 2018

Plenary Session Industry28-04-2015 - 12:47

Emergency call devices that automatically alert rescue services to car crashes (eCall) will have to be fitted to all new models of cars and light vans by 31 March 2018 under rules voted by European Parliament on Tuesday. Road accidents took 25,700 lives in the EU in 2014 – a death toll that the new devices could cut by an estimated 10% a year. (Read more: Automatic emergency call devices in all new car models from spring 2018 )

Plenary Session Institutions28-04-2015 - 11:57
The Parliament is set to debate and vote on the discharge of the 2013 annual budget on the 28 and 29 April plenary.  

MEPs scrutinise how money has been spent by the European Commission and the other EU institutions and agencies in a procedure known as discharge. Over the years, the procedure has become a very important tool to check how public funds have been spent and EU projects carried out. The European Parliament has the exclusive right to approve the budget implementation of the EU institutions. On 28 April MEPs debate and vote on the discharge of the 2013 annual budget. Read on to find out more. (Read more: Discharge procedure: how Parliament scrutinises the EU budget )

Alcohol: the risks of excessive consumption

Plenary Session Public health27-04-2015 - 15:30
 

Alcohol poses a major risk to public health: the direct and indirect social cost of alcohol abuse in Europe in 2010 alone is estimated at €155.8 billion. Although alcohol is high in calories and can contribute to obesity, most people have no idea how many calories there are in their drinks. A draft resolution to be debated today and voted on Wednesday calls among other things for mandatory labelling of calories in alcoholic drinks. Check out our chart on alcohol consumption in the EU. (Read more: Alcohol: the risks of excessive consumption )

 

Bangladesh: has the situation improved two years after the Rana Plaza disaster?

Plenary Session Delegations24-04-2015 - 12:26
Relatives of Rana Plaza victims hold photos of their loved ones. A year ago this week, more than 1,100 factory workers died when the eight-story Rana Plaza building in Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed into a heap of bricks and fabric bolts. @Rohat Ali Rajib  

The Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh collapsed two years ago today, claiming the lives of more than 1,100 people. The tragedy highlighted the human cost of cheap clothing. On 29 April MEPs vote on a resolution on the progress made since then in the garment industry in Bangladesh. Ahead of the vote, we talked to UK Greens/EFA member Jean Lambert, chair of the Parliament's South Asia delegation, about the improvements that have been implemented since the Rana Plaza disaster.
