MEPs’ plans to tighten up EU car “type approval” rules, in the wake of the VW scandal, will be outlined in 196 amendments to the EU Commission proposal to overhaul the current system, to be debated in the Internal Market Committee on Thursday at 11.00. These include stricter supervision of tests done before a car can be placed on the market and more stringent obligations on EU member states to check that those already on the road meet all EU safety, environmental and production requirements.

EU:s budget har i åratal kritiserats för att vara alltför beroende av medlemsstaternas bidrag och för att inte vara tillräckligt flexibel när oväntade kriser uppkommer. Parlamentets ledamöter diskuterade frågan den 7–8 september med sina nationella motsvarigheter under en konferens om hur EU:s budget ska finansieras. De flesta panelmedlemmarna var överens om att det behövs en reform för att garantera mer transparens och effektivitet. (Läs mer: Kan det finnas bättre sätt att finansiera EU? )

 

The recovery in the euro area is expected to continue at a moderate and steady pace, but slower than envisaged in June due to a lower foreign demand outlook, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi told Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee members on Monday.

Vem ska man fråga om Europas framtid om inte framtidens generation? I maj samlades 7000 unga européer i Strasbourg för den andra upplagan av Europeiska ungdomsevenemanget (EYE), där de diskuterade hur Europas många utmaningar ska klaras av. 50 av de bästa idéerna sammanställdes i en rapport som presenterades för parlamentet den 6 september. En del av idéerna kommer att skickas vidare till parlamentsutskotten, som från den 11 oktober kommer att diskutera dem med de inblandade ungdomarna.
