Operating rules for European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) aid to help fishermen to comply with new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) requirements were endorsed by Parliament on Wednesday. EMFF aid will help fishermen to observe the discard ban, e.g. by buying more selective fishing gear, but will also be used to improve safety and working conditions, data collection and port infrastructure. All this will help to make EU fisheries more sustainable. (Read more: New Fisheries Fund, signed and sealed, concludes EU fisheries policy reform)


EU aid to EU and EU candidate countries hit by flooding or other natural disasters should be delivered faster and more efficiently thanks to EU Solidarity Fund (EUSF) rule changes approved on Wednesday. These changes, already agreed with EU ministers, include extending the deadline for applying for natural disaster aid from 10 to 12 weeks, paying 10% of the aid in advance, and simplifying aid approval criteria for smaller, “regional”, disasters. (Read more: EU aid for disaster-stricken countries to arrive faster, with less red tape )


Għadda seklu minn meta l-Ewropa kienet dieħla f'wieħed mill-agħar kunflitti fl-istorja tagħna, kunflitt li biddel il-mappa tal-Ewropa għal dejjem: l-Ewwel Gwerra Dinjija. Waqt dibattitu fis-16 ta' April, li fakkar l-anniversarju ta' din il-Gwerra imminenti, il-membri wissew li l-paċi u l-istabbiltà qatt ma għandhom jiġu meqjusa bħala fatt. Huma sejħu għal aktar integrazzjoni u enfasizzaw l-importanza tal-ġlieda kontra n-nazzjonaliżmu, favur il-paċi, l-istabbiltà u s-sigurtà fl-Ewropa. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Il-paċi u l-istabbiltà qatt ma għandhom jiġu meqjusa bħala fatt.)


Draft rules to simplify re-registering of car or motorbike when the owner moves to a new EU country were referred back to the Internal Market Committee on Wednesday for further discussion, because the Council of Ministers was not yet ready to close a deal on them. (Read more: MEPs refer new rules on re-registering cars back to committee )

Stqarrijiet għall-istampa (it-tieni parti)

Skont regoli ġodda li vvota fuqhom il-Parlament Ewropew nhar l‑Erbgħa, il-pajjiżi tal‑UE jridu jnaqqsu l‑użu tal‑boroż tal‑plastik li jintużaw l‑aktar u li joħolqu l-aktar skart bi 80% sal‑2019. L-MEPs jirrakkomandaw li jkun hemm taxxi u imposti, restrizzjonijiet fuq il-promozzjoni ta' boroż bħal dawn, jew projbizzjonijiet. Il-boroż tal-plastik huma problema ambjentali kbira għaliex iħammġu speċjalment l-ilmijiet u ekosistemi akwatiċi. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: L-MEPs inaqqsu l-ħela tal-boroż tal-plastik)


Il-Parlament approva regoli ġodda dwar it-tfittxija u s-salvataġġ li jikkjarifikaw kif il-gwardji tal-fruntieri li jservu f'operazzjonijiet fuq il-baħar tal-Frontex għandhom jimxu mal-immigranti u fejn għandhom iniżżluhom. Ir-regoli, li diġà ġew maqbula informalment bejn il-Parlament u l-Kunsill, għandhom jidħlu fis-seħħ qabel das-sajf. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Immigrazzjoni: Regoli biex jiġu evitati mwiet fuq il-baħar)


The share of EU member states’ budget contributions that is based on gross national income (GNI) should be cut from 64% to 40% of total EU revenue and replaced by real “own resources”, says Parliament in three resolutions voted on Wednesday. Value-added tax based revenue, which today provides 11% of the EU budget, also needs drastic reform, it adds. (Read more: EU “own resources” should cut member states’ contributions to EU budget)


Measures to stop invasive alien species of plants animals or insects getting into the EU, or limit the ecological and economic damage caused by those that do, were backed by Parliament on Wednesday. The legislation bans species declared to be of “Union concern” and requires more and better-coordinated action by member states to tackle the threat. (Read more: Parliament backs EU-wide plans to stem the spread of invasive alien species)


Plans to reform the funding arrangements and legal status of European political parties and their affiliated foundations were backed by Parliament on Wednesday. The new rules, informally agreed with Council, will clarify the finances of these bodies and enhance their European character. A method to monitor compliance and impose penalties for breaches is also part of the deal. (Read more: New rules on funding EU political parties and foundations )


The EU should raise anti-dumping tariffs against dumped or subsidized imports from third countries and do much more to help small firms take advantage of EU measures to combat them, said Parliament on Wednesday, confirming its position on plans to update EU trade defence instruments. It also wants tougher tariffs against environmental or social dumping, and against dumping assisted by third country export subsidies. (Read more: MEPs confirm call for tougher measures against unfair imports )
