Negotiations on the PNR agreements with the US, Australia and Canada (debate)

  Claude Moraes (S&D). – Mr President, as one minute is not long, could I just check whether the Commissioner answered the question about the scope of the US agreement. I am not sure if we heard your answer to that.

You have said what the status of the various negotiations is. For the Socialist and Democrat Group there are currently too many differences between the PNR negotiations. It is important that, regardless of what third state we are negotiating with, we build on common principles.

Secondly, we cannot have vastly different standards of protection for European citizens depending on which third state they are flying to. By doing this we risk creating an incentive for Member States to begin to develop bilateral agreements which will then undermine our work at EU level. We should ensure full respect for the Charter. The scope – as everyone has said – should not be unnecessarily wide. Data retention periods should respect the tests of proportionality and necessity and we should have proper redress.

All of these principles are still up for grabs in some of the negotiations. If the EU institutions’ own legal services are providing opinions against the current status of negotiations, then we should listen and ensure the agreements we put in place respect the fundamental rights of EU citizens.
