Environment MEPs put forward a number of possible measures to cut the EU 88 million tonnes per year food waste by half by 2030 on Tuesday. MEPs called on the European Commission to lift existing restrictions on food donations and stressed a solution is needed for the confusion created for many consumers by the “best before” and “use by” labelling. (Read more: Proposals for cutting food waste )

Il-mexxejja tal-gruppi politiċi tal-Parlament Ewropew iddiskutew il-prijoritajiet tagħhom dwar in-negozjati għall-ħruġ tar-Renju Unit mill-Unjoni. Ir-rwol kruċjali tal-MEPs matul in-negozjati ġie ssottolinjat mill-President tal-Kummissjoni Ewropea Jean-Claude Juncker u min-negozjatur tal-UE dwar il-Brexit Michel Barnier, li lkoll ħadu sehem fid-dibattitu. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Limiti dwar kundizzjonijiet għan-negozjati dwar Brexit )

Il-Parlament neħħa l-aħħar ostaklu billi stabbilixxa limiti għall-prezzijiet tal-użu tar-roaming bl-ingrossa billi approva ftehim informali maqbul mal-Kunsill. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: It-tmiem tar-roaming: jitneħħa l-aħħar ostaklu )

The new EU Solidarity Corps (ECS) initiative, which aims to create 100,000 volunteering and job placement opportunities for young people, needs proper legislation and funding, say MEPS in a resolution passed on Thursday.

The European Parliament urges the Russian authorities to release opposition politician Alexei Navalny and other detained demonstrators, condemns the crackdown on peaceful protestors and arrests of human rights defenders and journalists in Belarus, and calls on the government of Bangladesh to close loopholes in new legislation that provide legal authorisation for child marriage, in three resolutions voted on Thursday.

(Read more: Hate speech and fake news: remove content, impose fines, foster media literacy? )

 

Multilateral measures are urgently needed to manage the unprecedented numbers of migrants on the move worldwide, and not least to halt migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, MEPs urge in a resolution voted on Wednesday. (Read more: Migration: the answer needs to be global )
