The EU Commission proposal to make it mandatory for EU member states to exchange information on their tax rulings received only a lukewarm welcome in Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on Tuesday. However, the report by Markus Ferber (EPP, DE), voicing dismay at the directive’s limited scope and late entry into force, has already been overtaken by last week's ECOFIN Council deal, which watered down the Commission proposal even further. (Read more: Mandatory exchange of tax rulings proposal: a "missed opportunity” say MEPs )


Building consumers trust in online goods and services, improving infrastructure and promoting innovation are keys to unlocking the potential of the EU digital single market, which could generate €415 billion each year, Internal market and Industry MEPs said during a debate on Tuesday. Several MEPs also underlined the need to ensure net neutrality and avoid unnecessary red tape. (Read more: Digital single market needs consumers' trust, say MEPs )


Organic farmers, processors, traders and importers must meet higher but realistic sustainability criteria and undergo strict food fraud checks to boost trust in the EU organic label, said agriculture MEPs on Tuesday. They introduced measures to avoid contamination of organic food, including on mixed organic and conventional farms, and endorsed plans to help small farmers turn organic. (Read more: Organic food: boosting EU production and enhancing consumer trust )


The budgets committee on Tuesday demanded more funds to handle the migration and refugee crisis, help young people into jobs, and fully offset the cuts to the EU's research and transport networks programs, in a political resolution on the 2016 budget. The committee had earlier reversed all the Council's cuts to the Commission's initial proposal. (Read more: Budgets MEPs want more money for migration and jobs in 2016 )

A draft EU law that would enable any member state to restrict or prohibit the sale and use of EU-approved GMO food or feed on its territory was opposed by Environment Committee MEPs on Tuesday. Members are concerned that the proposal might prove unworkable and lead to the reintroduction of border controls between pro and anti-GMO countries. The recommendation will be put to a vote by Parliament as a whole at the 26-29 October plenary session in Strasbourg. (Read more: Environment MEPs oppose national GMO import bans proposal )


Budget MEPs on Monday endorsed the Commission's proposal for new funds of €330.7 million and a redeployment of €70.6 million in commitment appropriations to cope with the refugee crisis. At the same time, the committee said a long-term solution to finance migration measures must be found when the EU's multiannual budget is reviewed in 2016.

François Hollande og Angela Merkel debatterede de udfordringer, Europa står over for, med MEP’erne under oktobers første plenarmøde, fra økonomien til flygtningekrisen og situationen i Syrien. MEP'erne diskuterede også Volkswagenskandalen med Kommissionen, der forbereder ny lovgivning for strammere regler for test af køretøjer. Desuden blev flygtningekrisen drøftet med Det Europæiske Råds formand Donald Tusk efter det ekstraordinære EU-topmøde i september om spørgsmålet.

I maj 2014 kom tusinder unge europæere til European Youth Event (EYE) i Europa-Parlamentet i Strasbourg for at drøfte Europas fremtid. Som resultat af arrangementet blev ideer præsenteret i forskellige parlamentariske udvalg. Næste år er EYE 2016 tilbage. Det første udkast til program for EYE 2016 er blevet frigivet, og du kan nu tilmelde dig. (Læs mere: Det europæiske ungdomsarrangement EYE 2016: Åben for tilmeldinger )


Despite the EU’s 2006 Directive on equality between men and women in the labour market, differences in their pay persist and are even growing, say MEPs in a non-legislative resolution voted on Thursday. As member states did not take the opportunity to update their laws on equal opportunities and treatment, MEPs urge the EU Commission to table fresh legislation "providing for more effective means of supervising the implementation and enforcement in member states". (Read more: Pay gap between men and women: MEPs call for binding measures to close it )


En opdatering af EU-reglerne om betalingstjenester vil gøre det billigere at betale regninger ved at gøre det muligt for nye aktører at bruge mobil- og onlinesystemer til at udføre betalinger på deres kunders vegne, siger MEP'erne, der torsdag stemte om en ny lov om betalingstjenester. Reglerne, som der blev indgået aftale med Ministerrådet om i maj, skal også gøre det sikrere at betale over nettet ved at fastsætte databeskyttelses- og ansvarsregler for alle onlineudbydere af betalingstjenester. (Læs mere: Ny lov om betalingstjenester på nettet skal mindske gebyrer og svindel )
