  Giles Chichester, rapporteur for the opinion of the Committee on Petitions . − Mr President, many years ago, in the previous Parliament, the Committee on Petitions received six petitions on this subject yet, through various devices, we have been unable to debate it until now. I therefore welcome this debate.

The monthly migration between Brussels and Strasbourg has become a symbolic negative issue for most EU citizens. We asked the administration to make a comprehensive analysis of the potential savings for our budget if Parliament had only one place of work. We called on Parliament to debate the matter and, if an appropriate vote is recorded on this report, on which I congratulate my colleague and his fellow rapporteur, we recommend that Parliament initiate a Treaty revision procedure under Article 48 of the Treaty on European Union.
