(Read more: Most young Europeans feel marginalised by the crisis, says Eurobarometer poll )


In today's plenary session Vice President Ryszard Czarnecki announced that the President had received a motion of censure on the Commission, signed by the necessary number of MEPs, saying that the European Commission had failed to comply with its legal obligation to publish scientific criteria for defining endocrine disruptors. The debate on this motion of censure will take place during the next part-session. (Read more: Endocrine disruptors : motion of censure on the Commission announced in plenary )
