De vergaderperiode van het Europees Parlement vindt plaats van 6 tot 9 juli 2015


The EU must do more to help farmers to earn a fair return from the food supply chain, introduce better tools for dealing with market disturbances and help farmers to find new outlets for produce shut out of the Russian market, MEPs say in two non-binding resolutions voted on Tuesday. Member states should help them join forces in producer organisations to boost their bargaining power, they add. (Read more: Milk, fruit, vegetables: help farmers earn fair incomes and resist market shocks )


Integrated ticketing for travel across EU borders using more than one mode of transport would increase the use of public transport, said MEPs on Tuesday. They call on EU countries to improve and connect timetables and on providers to develop multimodal cross-border "journey planners". If there is no progress by 2020 they will call for legislation. (Read more: Boost efforts to provide single ticketing for trips across EU borders, say MEPs )


Three agencies managing migration flows into the EU and two EU funds for migration measures should get a €69.6 million budget boost for extra staff and other expenses for this year, after Parliament backed a European Commission proposal on Tuesday. Parliament has been calling for the bigger budgets in the wake of the April tragedies that cost the lives of around 1,200 migrants. (Read more: Parliament approves an extra €69.6 million to help cope with migrants )


Romania, Bulgaria and Italy will receive €66.5 million in total for compensation to cover part of the cost of emergency measures taken during the 2014 floods, after Parliament approved a Commission proposal for this on Tuesday. The aid is covered by the European Solidarity Fund. (Read more: €66.5 million for flood damage repairs in Romania, Bulgaria and Italy )

MEPs will raise concerns about the compatibility of some of the law's provisions with the European treaties with the Commission's director for criminal justice, Francisco Morillo. (Read more: Civil liberties MEPs to debate concerns over French surveillance law )


EP-Voorzitter Martin Schulz zei gisteren dat de Europese instellingen “een beroep doen op het Griekse volk om ‘ja’ te stemmen voor de voorstellen van de instellingen". Sprekend na de aankondiging van een referendum in Griekenland over de voorstellen voor verdere economische steun door de EU, liet Schulz weten dat dit "een handreiking aan het Griekse volk is". Hij voegde eraan toe dat het resultaat van het referendum "fundamenteel is" wat betreft de positie van Griekenland in de eurozone. (Lees meer: Voorzitter Schulz over voorstellen EU: "Een handreiking aan het Griekse volk" )


De ramp met het vliegtuig van Germanwings in maart wierp vragen op over de veiligheid van de luchtvaart nadat de onderzoekers ontdekten dat de copiloot het vliegtuig opzettelijk had laten neerstorten. Op 29 juni besprak de vervoerscommissie hoe kan worden voorkomen dat zoiets opnieuw gebeurt, met de Europese Commissie en Patrick Ky, uitvoerend directeur van het Europees Agentschap voor de Veiligheid van de Luchtvaart (EASA). Zij bespraken verder de aanbevelingen van een EASA-task force. (Lees meer: Onderzoek naar veiligheid luchtvaart in de EU )


An informal deal to ban surcharges ("roaming fees") for making mobile phone calls, sending text messages or using the internet while abroad in another EU country from 15 June 2017 was struck by MEPs and EU ministers in the small hours of Tuesday morning. MEPs also inserted guarantees that all internet traffic is treated equally, without discrimination. To enter into force, this informal deal needs to be formally endorsed by the full Parliament and the Council of Ministers.
