Debate on future financing of the EU budget at 15.00

Plenary Session Budget16-04-2014 - 13:44

MEPs are set to debate at 15.00 how the EU budget should be put together. A large majority of MEPs believes that the budget relies too heavily on member states’ contributions (these now make up 64%) and want them replaced by real “own resources” as prescribed by the Treaty.

Measures to stop invasive alien species of plants animals or insects getting into the EU, or limit the ecological and economic damage caused by those that do, were backed by Parliament on Wednesday. The legislation bans species declared to be of “Union concern” and requires more and better-coordinated action by member states to tackle the threat.

Plans to reform the funding arrangements and legal status of European political parties and their affiliated foundations were backed by Parliament on Wednesday.

EU countries would have to reduce the use of the most common and most polluting plastic bags by at at least 80% by 2019, under draft rules backed by Parliament on Wednesday. MEPs recommend using taxes and levies, marketing restrictions or bans. Plastic carrier bag litter is a major environmental problem, known to pollute water bodies and aquatic eco-systems in particular.

MEPs confirm call for tougher measures against unfair imports

Plenary Session External/international trade16-04-2014 - 13:12

The EU should raise anti-dumping tariffs against dumped or subsidized imports from third countries and do much more to help small firms take advantage of EU measures to combat them, said Parliament on Wednesday, confirming its position on plans to update EU trade defence instruments. It also wants tougher tariffs against environmental or social dumping, and against dumping assisted by third country export subsidies.

Better enforcing posted workers’ rights

Plenary Session Social policy / Employment policy16-04-2014 - 12:57
Construction workers do their job on the site of the European Central Bank's (ECB) new headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, central Germany  

Workers posted abroad temporarily to provide services would be better protected by a draft law already informally agreed with the Council, and endorsed by Parliament on Wednesday. Parliament's negotiators strengthened the draft by clarifying the rules to distinguish genuine posting from attempts to circumvent the law but also gave EU member states some flexibility to carry out checks. Building industry contractors and subcontractors would be jointly and severally liable for abuses of labour law. (Read more: Better enforcing posted workers’ rights)

 
 

Invasive alien species: "The damage and costs continue to increase"

One of the worst threats to Europe's biodiversity and ecosystems is plant and animals species coming from other countries and continents, which often cause the near extinction of native species. On 16 April MEPs approved new rules to tackle this issue. “Invasive alien species are the second most significant threat to biodiversity after habitat loss and they are also recognised as a major cause of species extinction,” said Pavel Poc, the MEP responsible for steering the proposal through the EP.

MEPs push for mandatory "made-in" labelling to tighten up product safety rules

Plenary Session Free movement of goods15-04-2014 - 19:06

"Made-in" labelling should be made mandatory for non-food products sold on the single market, Parliament said in Tuesday’s vote on plans to tighten up product safety requirements and market surveillance rules so as to strengthen consumer protection in the EU. Parliament also wants tougher penalties for firms selling non-compliant or potentially dangerous products.

Plenary Session Economic and monetary affairs15-04-2014 - 18:58

Comprehensive rules to govern financial markets were adopted by Parliament on Tuesday.

Workers posted abroad: “The law is there, we just have to make it work”

Plenary Session Employment policy15-04-2014 - 15:31
ITW with Danuta Jazlowiecka  

The single market makes it possible for companies to send employees to other EU countries to help customers there, but many fear this is being abused to avoid local labour market rules. MEPs vote on 16 April on new rules to stop abuse and better protect the rights of posted workers. Ahead of the plenary debate on 15 April and the vote on 16 April, we spoke to Danuta Jazłowiecka, a Polish member of the EPP group responsible for steering the legislation through Parliament.

Paulsen: Important to strike a balance between free trade and disease control

Plenary Session Public health15-04-2014 - 15:08
ITW with Mari Paulsen  

Animal diseases pose a significant risk to public health as most infectious diseases can spread between species. The European Parliament votes 15 April on new rules updating some 40 pieces of European legislation dating back to the 1960s. This would not only clarify who would be responsible for what, but also make prevention a higher priority. We spoke to Marit Paulsen (ALDE, Sweden), responsible for steering the proposal through Parliament, about the difference the new legislation would make.

Basic bank accounts for all

Plenary Session Economic and monetary affairs15-04-2014 - 12:45

Anyone legally residing in the EU would have the right to open a basic payment account, and no-one could be denied this right on grounds of nationality or place of residence, under a new law passed by Parliament on Tuesday. This law should also ensure that fees and rules for all payment accounts are transparent and comparable and make it easy to switch to another payment account that offers better terms.

Three measures to ensure that banks shoulder the risks of failure rather than relying on taxpayers to bail them out were approved by Parliament on Tuesday. Two deal with restructuring and winding down troubled banks, and the third ensures that banks, not taxpayers, guarantee deposits under €100,000 in the event of a run on a bank. These measures complement the single bank supervision system, already in place, and take the EU far down the road towards banking union.

A minute of silence during the opening of April plenary session  

The European Parliament does not recognise Russia’s illegal occupation of the Crimea, and urges it to withdraw its troops from Ukraine’s border in line with international law and principles, said President Schulz, opening the final plenary session of this legislature. He also called a minute’s silence marking the 20th anniversary of Rwanda’s genocide of 800,000 people. (Read more: Opening: Don’t dismember Ukraine, minute’s silence for Rwandan genocide victims)
