A lively debate on the proposal for “reformed system” to resolve disputes between foreign investors and states in the Transatlantic Trade and investment partnership (TTIP) deal, currently being negotiated between the EU and the United states, took place between Trade Committee MEPs and EU Trade Commissioner Malmström on Wednesday afternoon. (Read more: Investor-state dispute settlement proposals debated with Commissioner Malmström )

 

The proposed Digital Single Market strategy is needed to build trust in the online world, boost growth and protect the rights of citizens, creators and companies. These were among the first reactions from the chairs of the three committees that will work intensively on today's Commission proposal. This afternoon and tomorrow morning, the Commissioners responsible will visit Parliament to discuss the proposal with MEPs. (Read more: Digital single market – committee chairs welcome proposal )

 

EU asylum applications for unaccompanied minors should be processed in the EU country where the child is present, even if this is not where the child first applied, said Civil Liberties Committee MEPs on Wednesday. Processing where children are present is usually in their best interests, and avoids moving them unnecessarily between member states, say the committee’s amendments to the Dublin Regulation, which determines which member state should examine asylum applications. (Read more: Unaccompanied minors’ asylum applications: process where the kids are, say MEPs )

 

People who are suspected or accused of a crime, or are named in a European Arrest Warrant, but cannot afford a lawyer or court proceedings, should have access to EU member state funding and assistance for both “provisional” and "ordinary” legal aid, say Civil Liberties MEPs in amendments, voted on Wednesday, to a proposed EU directive on fair trial rights.

EU rules on payment services would be updated to improve security, widen consumer choice and keep pace with innovation under an informal deal struck by Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee MEPs and the Latvian Presidency of the Council on Tuesday. The updated rules aim to stimulate competition to provide payment services and foster innovative payment methods, especially for online payment services. They still need to be endorsed by Parliament as a whole and the Council. (Read more: Updating payment service rules: MEPs do deal with the Council )

 

Het conflict en humanitaire crisis in Irak waren het gespreksonderwerp van een ontmoeting tussen Voorzitter Martin Schulz en vertegenwoordigers van de yezidi in het Parlementl. Na zijn ontmoeting met het Iraakse parlementslid Vian Dakhil en een delegatie slachtoffers van IS, omschreef de Voorzitter zichzelf als "zeer geraakt" en zei: "Wij ondersteunen hun zaak en niet aflatende strijd tegen de straffeloosheid". (Lees meer: Yezidi's vragen om hulp in strijd tegen Islamitische Staat )

 

Elke dag gebruiken 315 miljoen Europeanen het internet. We lezen het nieuws, bekijken filmpjes, winkelen en spreken vrienden. Om te zorgen dat de mogelijkheden van het digitale tijdperk worden benut om groei en werkgelegenheid over de grenzen heen aan te jagen, presenteert de Europese Commissie op 6 mei de strategie voor de Digitale Eengemaakte markt. De industriecommissie bespreekt de strategie met Andrus Ansip, Vicevoorzitter van de Commissie voor de interne digitale markt. (Lees meer: Van geoblocking tot cloudcomputing: gids voor het digitale tijdperk )

 

Toen de nationale overheden begonnen met bezuinigingen en private financiering opdroogde als gevolg van de crisis, bleven de cohesiegelden naar de lidstaten en regio’s vloeien en dit steunde belangrijke investeringen in groei en werkgelegenheid. Dit is één van de belangrijkste bevindingen van het zesde verslag van de Europese Commissie over de economische, sociale en territoriale cohesie, waarover vandaag door de parlementaire commissie Regionaal beleid werd gestemd. (Lees meer: Cohesiebeleid: armere regio's helpen om groei en de werkgelenheid aan te jagen )
