Et stort flertal af danskerne ønsker mere EU-handling på en række politikområder, viser en ny Eurobarometer-undersøgelse foretaget for Europa-Parlamentet i samtlige 28 medlemslande. Ifølge de adspurgte danskere bør kampen mod terrorisme og bekæmpelse af skattesvig være EU’s vigtigste prioriteter. Men også inden for miljø, migration, beskyttelse af de ydre grænser og forebyggelse af arbejdsløshed efterlyser danskerne en større fælles EU-indsats.

The EU needs a common definition of “normal car use”, says Renault. Diesel engine NOx emissions are the price paid to hit lower CO2 targets, says the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association. But Volkswagen is ashamed of cheating to beat strict US emissions laws. So said contributors to the “triple bill” of hearings in held by the Committee of Inquiry into Emission Measurements in the Automotive Sector (EMIS) on Wednesday and Thursday. Its work will continue after the summer break. (Read more: Car emissions: manufacturers and a former EU Commissioner quizzed by MEPs )

 

EU countries will have to introduce stronger controls on “blank-firing” guns, to prevent them being converted to fire live ammunition, under Internal Market Committee amendments, voted on Wednesday, to a draft update of the EU firearms directive. The changes approved by MEPs ensure that any firearm which has been converted to firing blanks continues to be covered by EU gun control rules. This closes a legal loophole which became evident in the aftermath of last year’s terrorist attacks in Paris. (Read more: Gun control: MEPs clarify licensing rules and safeguards )
