Video of the speeches

  President. – Written declaration No 0041/2011 tabled by Alain Cadec and others on combating algal blooms has been signed by more than the majority of Parliament’s component Members. In accordance with Rule 123, it will be forwarded to its addressees and published in the Texts Adopted of the current sitting together with the names of the signatories.


  Alain Cadec (PPE).(FR) Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, I have no doubt that the Commission will take into account this written declaration and thus ensure that this serious problem affecting our European coast is given consideration at Community level. We must draw up a European action plan to combat the proliferation of algal blooms, based on cooperation among the Member States.

I would like to thank all of the signatories who supported me and those who, in each case, put up with my persistence in the Chamber over four part-sessions, here in Strasbourg, where we are so content, ladies and gentlemen. I would particularly like to thank my colleagues who supported me in this cause: Mr Olejniczak, on behalf of the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament, Mr Tremopoulos, on behalf of the Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance, and Mr Zanoni, on behalf of the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe. Thank you all, ladies and gentlemen.
