To complement the European Implementation Assessment, Working with national parliaments on EU affairs, prepared for the Committee on Constitutional Affairs' implementation report on implementation of the Treaty provisions on national parliaments, an anonymous survey was made of the permanent representatives of Member States' national parliaments in the European Parliament. The survey was carried out between 23 August and 30 September 2017 by the Ex-Post Evaluation Unit of the Directorate for Impact Assessment and European Added Value, within the European Parliament's Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services. It focused on the practical and administrative aspects of the permanent representatives' work. The replies received also included views on various possibilities for the European Parliament to move forward based on its institutional prerogatives. This briefing presents and summarises the responses to the survey, and should be considered in conjunction with the above-mentioned European Implementation Assessment.
