EP President Martin Schulz said: "The repeated and arbitrary denial of entrance onto Russian territory of elected parliamentarians, as testified by the latest case of MEP Sandra Kalniete, is a high affront to the EU-Russia relations and the work of democratic institutions. (Read more: Schulz on denial of entrance onto Russian territory of MEP Kalniete )

The works will start on 3 March and will last until 12 April. (Read more: Information to the press: renovation work at the accreditation centre )

 

The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) must focus on currently underfunded areas, so as to complement, not duplicate, other EU budget tools, said MEPs at Monday’s expert hearing on the Juncker investment plan proposals. The hearing was held by the Budgets and Economic and Monetary Affairs committees with a view to shaping legislation for the investment plan. (Read more: Juncker investment plan must complement other EU tools, say MEPs )

Some 3,000 workers made redundant in Belgium, Germany and Poland in 2013-2014 should receive EU aid worth €6.3million to help them find jobs, the Budgets Committee recommended on Thursday. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aid still has to be approved by Parliament as a whole and the Council of Ministers. (Read more: EU job-search aid for redundant workers in Belgium, Germany and Poland )

 

Next year’s EU budget priorities should be fostering growth by helping employment, enterprises and entrepreneurship, showing solidarity both within the EU and with countries outside it and putting EU finances in order by tackling the overdue payments backlog and reforming the EU revenue system, say Budgets Committee MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. (Read more: Growth, solidarity and paying the bills: budget MEPs vote 2016 budget priorities )

 

Parliament’s newly-established Special Committee on Tax Rulings elected Alain Lamassoure (EPP, FR) as its chair at its constituent meeting on Thursday morning. As vice-chairs, the committee elected Bernd Lucke (ECR, DE), Marisa Matias (GUE/NGL, PT) and Eva Joly (Greens/EFA, FR). Rapporteurs will be appointed on 9 March. (Read more: Alain Lamassoure elected chair of Special Committee on Tax Rulings )

 

Debating the activities of the ECB with MEPs, ECB President Mario Draghi pledged to work towards a genuine Economic Union. "Economic convergence has not been as sustainable as it was hoped for at the outset. This still puts at risk the long-term success of the monetary union when faced with an important shock", he said. (Read more: Draghi to Parliament: deeper Monetary Union needed to deal with important shocks )

 

The violations of the Minsk II Ukraine-Russia ceasefire agreement, the deal reached with Greece, a Passenger Name Record (PNR) system to fight terrorism and the worrying situation in Libya were among the issues addressed in a debate with European Council and Commission presidents Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday. (Read more: Ukraine, Greece, terrorism, Libya: highlights of debate with Tusk and Juncker )
