Explanations of vote

Text tabled : A7-0367/2011

  Vilja Savisaar-Toomast (ALDE), in writing. (ET) In today’s vote on the report on the revision of the directive establishing a single European railway area, I supported only part of the directive in the final vote. There were, unfortunately, some amendments that I was unable to support. I will comment on these below. Firstly, Parliament approved an amendment that does not offer sufficient clarity regarding the use of public funds. This makes it possible for an entrepreneur who owns both infrastructure and the organisation of freight transport to use government support for purposes other than the development of infrastructure. Secondly, Parliament approved an amendment that adds to the list of direct expenses of organisers of freight transport restaurant and kindergarten expenses, which clearly do not belong there. I am glad that the increasing of the rights and obligations of supervisory organisations was supported under the leadership of the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe , and the procedure for their funding was elaborated upon. In addition, parliament supported a proposal to define the rights and obligations of rail service providers and their differentiation from the largest rail enterprises, in order to guarantee the accessibility of services and equal price policies for all market participants.

Although the rapporteur sought complete separation, this was unfortunately not supported in Parliament, and no great breakthrough took place in that area. One noteworthy amendment concerned the Baltic States. This permits the continuation of the existing usage fees system, which avoids the use of public funds for the subsidisation of freight transport originating from third countries.
