Charles Tannock (PPE-DE), author. Madam President, there has been a change in the PPE-DE voting list. I would recommend to colleagues that the change should be from positive to negative. On the original text, on recital B, there is a request for a vote on the original text by the UEN Group, and I am recommending to colleagues that we now vote to delete that paragraph, i.e. vote against. It currently appears as positive. We want to change it to ‘against’.
Andrikienė, Laima Liucija (PPE-DE). – Madam President, I should like to move an oral amendment so that the title of the motion for resolution would read as follows: ‘Justice for “comfort women” (sex slaves in Asia before and during World War II)’.
Marios Matsakis (ALDE). – Madam President, there has clearly been an alteration to the oral amendment, and the author is now in favour of that oral amendment.
