MEPs want a winter plan for the thousands of asylum seekers living in precarious conditions across the EU as the cold approaches.

In a debate starting at around 10.45 on Wednesday morning, they will ask Commissioner Dimitiris Avramopoulos and the Estonian Council presidency for measures to prevent a humanitarian crisis.

 

You can watch the plenary debate via EP Live, and EbS+.

 

Parliament  is set to confirm  its negotiating mandate this week for a review of the Dublin Regulation, which establishes the EU country responsible for processing an asylum application.  MEPs aim to ensure that all member states assume their fair share of responsibility for hosting asylum seekers, so as to ensure that most do not end up concentrated in  in a few front-line countries.
