De vergaderperiode van het Europees Parlement vindt plaats van 24 tot 27 oktober 2016


Het Europees Parlement dringt aan op meer geld voor de aanpak van jeugdwerkloosheid, het stimuleren van economische groei en hulp aan derde landen die kampen met grote migratiestromen. EP-leden willen bovendien alle kortingen ongedaan maken die de Raad wil doorvoeren. De resolutie die woensdag werd aangenomen stelt ook dat een deel van de aanvullende fondsen moet komen uit een herziening van de plafonds voor het meerjarig financieel kader (MFK) waar nu over wordt onderhandeld. (Lees meer: EU begroting 2017: EP wil meer geld voor banen en jongeren )


De EU moet wettelijke maximumnormen invoeren op industrieel geproduceerde transvetzuren die het risico op hart- en vaatziekten, onvruchtbaarheid, Alzheimer, diabetes en obesitas voor consumenten verhogen, zo stelt het EP in een resolutie die woensdag is aangenomen. (Lees meer: EP wil gebruik transvetzuren in voedsel inperken )


The threats, violations and restrictions faced by journalists in Turkey will be debated with Commissioner Corina Creţu, representing EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, late on Wednesday afternoon. Since the 15 July failed coup d’état, which left 241 people dead and thousands injured, 90 journalists have been jailed, more than 2,500 have lost their jobs and arrest warrants have been issued against hundreds of media workers in the country. (Read more: Press freedom in Turkey up for a debate late on Wednesday afternoon )


New rules to curb the growing influx into the EU of plant pests, such as olive grove killer Xylella fastidiosa, and better equip member states to tackle their spread, were endorsed by the Parliament on Wednesday. The new regulation introduces preventive and rapid response mechanisms for suspect plant imports, steps up pest surveillance efforts in the EU and requires all member states to draw up outbreak contingency plans.

Persmededelingen (deel 2)

Parliament backs the EU Commission case for investing in innovation, growth and job creation, pursuing socially-balanced structural reforms, and encouraging responsible public finances, in a resolution on EU economic priorities for 2017, voted on Wednesday. (Read more: MEPs set out their stance on EU economic priorities for 2017 )


The EU needs to update its long-term financial plan to cope with unforeseen crises said MEPs in their vote on its forthcoming review, on Wednesday. MEPs acknowledged that the Commission’s proposal to revise the multiannual financial framework (MFF) genuinely responds to requests in Parliament’s negotiating stance, adopted in July, for more flexibility and an EU crisis reserve. However, they were disappointed that resources remain unchanged. (Read more: EU’s long-term budget: MEPs vote for more headroom to cope with crises )


The websites and apps of public administrations, hospitals, courts and other public sector bodies will have to be made accessible to everyone, under new EU-wide rules approved by the European Parliament on Wednesday. The web accessibility directive, already agreed by Parliament and Council, should make it easier for disabled and elderly people to access data and services on the internet, e.g. to file a tax declaration, apply for an allowance, pay fees or enrol at university. (Read more: Online public services to be made more accessible for the disabled and elderly )


Council President Donald Tusk and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker briefed MEPs on the political conclusions of the latest EU summit in Wednesday’s plenary debate. Political group leaders focused on the proposed EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) recently rejected by Wallonia’s parliament, EU-Russia relations, trade defence instruments and migration. (Read more: CETA and Russia dominate debate with Juncker and Tusk )


Migrant children, and especially those travelling alone, are among the most vulnerable people on earth. MEPs will discuss how the EU can guarantee their rights and protection in a debate with Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos on Wednesday afternoon at around 16.00. The consequences of the dismantlement of the Calais “jungle”, where there were several unaccompanied asylum-seekers, are likely to be raised. (Read more: Protecting migrant children: Wednesday afternoon debate )


MEPs welcomed the EU Commission proposal for a common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB) in a debate with Commissioner Pierre Moscovici on Tuesday evening. (Read more: MEPs welcome Commission’s corporate tax proposals )
