Video of the speeches

  President. – I would like to wish all my fellow Members a safe journey home. Just in case you should find yourselves held up in Germany because of bad weather or strikes, I would advise you all that this Thursday, in anticipation of the Carnival celebrations, there is a custom in Germany for men to have their ties cut off. So, if you are wearing an expensive tie, remember to take it off in Germany.

I declare the session of the European Parliament adjourned.

(The sitting closed at 16.30)
