MEPs to call for treaty change to allow Parliament to decide where it sits

The European Parliament should have the right to decide where and when it meets, says a resolution to be debated on Tuesday and voted by the full House on Wednesday. Constitutional Affairs Committee MEPs suggest initiating an ordinary treaty revision procedure to propose the changes needed to allow Parliament to decide on the location of its seat and its internal organisation.


“The European Parliament would be more effective, cost-efficient and respectful of the environment if it were located in a single place” says the text approved in the Constitutional Affairs Committee by 22 votes to 4.

According to the report, the additional annual costs resulting from Parliament’s geographic dispersion (between Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg) are estimated to range between €156 million and €204 million, equivalent to about 10% of its annual budget.

Procedure: Non-legislative resolution
Debate: Tuesday, 19 November
Vote: Wednesday, 20 November
