Explanations of vote

  John Attard-Montalto (PSE). Mr President, I wish to explain why I did not vote in accordance with the party line on most of the amendments to the Cercas report. The reason was that, after taking into account informal meetings with the largest trade unions in my country, it emerged that, at present, Malta is not in an economic position to be able to implement the directive on working time.

As explained by my colleague who has just addressed this House, the lower-income social classes would be unable to honour their commitments unless their incomes were supplemented through overtime and other allowances.
