MEPs want an EU work programme in line with genuine concerns and expectations of the Europeans. In their debate with Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans on Tuesday, they focused on the social dimensions of EU policies, investment, trade, migration and security. (Read more: Commission Work Programme: Parliament debates EU priorities for 2017 )


Parliament debated both the mid-term revision of the EU’s multiannual financial framework (MFF) 2014-2020 and the EU budget for 2017 with budgets Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva on Wednesday afternoon. For the 2017 budget debate, MEPs were joined by Slovakia’s state secretary for finance Ivan Lesay, representing the Council Presidency. (Read more: Parliament clashes with Council on EU’s 2017 budget and MFF mid-term revision )


MEPs will assess the results of the European Council meeting of 20-21 October in a three-hour debate with Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Council President Donald Tusk on Wednesday morning. Issues raised will include the fate of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), negotiations for free trade deals with other countries, EU-Russia relations, upgrading EU trade defence instruments, Mediterranean migration trends and protecting the EU’s external borders. (Read more: Debate: CETA, EU-Russia relations, migrants with Juncker and Tusk Wednesday 9.00 )


Commissioner Pierre Moscovici is set to present the Commission’s new corporate tax proposals in the plenary chamber on Tuesday around 18:30. The package will include, inter alia, a proposal for a common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB). (Read more: Commission to present common consolidated corporate tax base proposal to MEPs )

Stqarrijiet għall-istampa (it-tieni parti)

To end the current “crisis-driven” approach to perceived breaches of democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights in EU member states, the EU Commission should set up a binding EU mechanism to monitor and report annually on their records in these fields, say MEPs in a resolution passed on Tuesday. This mechanism should include objective benchmarks and lay down a gradual approach to remedying breaches, they add. (Read more: MEPs call for EU democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights watchdog )


Clear rules requiring EU firms to respect human rights in all their global operations must be laid down and enforced, urge MEPs in a resolution voted on Tuesday. Clauses on corporate liability for human rights violations should be included in EU trade and investment agreements, they add. MEPs also advocate creating a certified “abuse-free” product label at EU level. (Read more: EU rules needed to ensure firms respect human rights abroad, say MEPs )


The EU strategy for liquefied natural gas (LNG) must make energy supplies more secure, cut carbon emissions and deliver affordable prices say MEPs in a resolution voted on Tuesday. Parliament calls on the EU Commission to aim to reduce the EU’s dependency on gas in the long term by using it more efficiently and gradually phasing out fossil fuel subsidies. (Read more: Gas: use EU storage capacity efficiently and forge trade partnerships, urge MEPs )


EU fisheries rules should be applied uniformly to all EU fishermen, so that they are treated fairly, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Tuesday. Inspection procedures, e.g. for net mesh sizes and catches, should be standardized, as should penalties for infringements, it says. Introducing an EU “core curriculum” for training all fisheries inspectors, and using compatible real-time communication technologies EU wide, would also help improve fairness, it adds. (Read more: MEPs ask for uniform fair treatment for EU fishermen )


The Commission should review its legislation against corruption and organised crime to better equip Member States in their fight against criminal organisations operating in the EU, say MEPs in a non-legislative resolution passed on Tuesday. MEPs call for initiatives such as EU-wide rules to seize assets from criminal organisations to re-use for social purposes and protection of whistle-blowers. (Read more: MEPs demand new EU rules to improve fight against organised crime and corruption )


Plans to prolong a 10% increase in the EU contribution towards regional and social project costs in Greece until 30 June of the year after its economic adjustment programme ends were approved by Parliament on Tuesday. MEPs also approved a special provision whereby the EU would pay up to 85% of project costs in Cyprus until the current regional and social policy programming period ends in 2020. (Read more: Green light to prolong top-up in EU funding for projects in Greece and Cyprus )
