The EU must take concrete steps to tackle the migration crisis and terrorism, such as building a partnership to this end with Africa, said MEPs in Wednesday’s debate with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and Nicolas Schmit, representing the Council Presidency. The debate focused on the outcomes of the EU-Africa summit in Valletta (Malta) on 11-12 November and the G20 one in Antalya (Turkey) on 15-16 November. (Read more: MEPs call on the EU to step up cooperation with Africa after the Valletta summit )


F’riżoluzzjoni vvutata nhar l-Erbgħa, il-Parlament esprima l-veduti tiegħu dwar kif l-intaxxar tal-kumpaniji madwar l-Ewropa għandu jkun aktar ġust. L-MEPs ħeġġew lill-pajjiżi membri biex jiftiehmu fuq il-ħtieġa li kumpaniji multinazzjonali jirrappurtaw b’mod obbligatorju l-profitti u t-taxxi tagħhom pajjiż pajjiż. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Il-Parlament jappella għal bidla fl-intaxxar tal-kumpaniji )


The House debated anti-dumping measures and sustainable initiatives to support the European base metals industry, including steel, with the Industry Commissioner, Elżbieta Bieńkowska, on Tuesday evening. It will vote in December on a draft resolution prepared by Edouard Martin (S&D, FR). (Read more: EU needs to boost its steel industry, say MEPs )


The terrorist attacks in Paris have highlighted once more the urgent need for coordinated action by the member states and the EU to prevent radicalisation and fight against terrorism, says Parliament in a non-binding resolution passed on Wednesday. The resolution sets out concrete proposals for a comprehensive strategy to tackle extremism, to be applied in particular in prisons, online and through education and social inclusion. (Read more: EP calls for joint EU strategy to fight radicalisation of young EU citizens )

"It is by effectively increasing cooperation between member states - from security apparatus to intelligence activities - that we, together, can defeat terrorism, make our citizens safer and preserve our way of life", President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella told MEPs during a formal sitting on Wednesday. Mr Mattarella spoke about the future of the EU, and in particular how EU countries should respond to the threat of terrorism and the challenges of migration. (Read more: “Tackle terrorism in the light of our values” says Italy’s President Mattarella )


The EU Commission should not authorise the recycling of plastics that contain the banned softener diethylhexyl phthalate (DHEP), to make soft PVC items such as footwear and floor coverings, because it poses a reproductive toxicity threat to exposed workers and could render their male foetuses sterile, says a non-binding resolution adopted by Parliament on Wednesday. (Read more: Don’t allow recycling of plastics that contain toxic phthalate DEHP, warn MEPs )


Parliament adopted the EU budget for 2016 on Wednesday, setting commitment appropriations at €155 billion and payment appropriations at €143.9 billion as agreed between Parliament and Council on 14 November. Parliament secured the maximum amount of funding possible for migration and refugees, small and medium sized enterprises, students, and the EU research programme Horizon2020. (Read more: Migration and jobs: Parliament adopts next year's EU budget )


“Political grandstanding” that equates refugees with terrorists only foments the hatred and disillusion that inspires those who join terrorist groups, argued many MEPs in Wednesday’s debate. Rather than allow Europe’s freedoms and tolerance to be eroded, EU countries must strive to strengthen security, by stepping up intelligence cooperation and data-sharing, and investing in the skills and technology needed to fight terrorism, MEPs urged. (Read more: Don’t equate refugees with terrorists – boost security instead, urge MEPs )

Buying insurance will be made easier and safer following Parliament's vote on Tuesday tightening EU rules on the information and advice provided by insurance sales staff. The current rules on sales of insurance have been amended to introduce similar information and consumer protection requirements for all insurance distribution channels unless they meet the conditions for exemption. (Read more: EP backs deal on better information, advice and protection for insurance buyers )
