  President. – Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you all back to our first plenary sitting after the summer break. I hope that you have all had a good break, as the next few months will certainly be full of intensive work, and may even be dramatic. You are all aware that, on Wednesday morning, the President of the Commission, Mr Barroso, will be giving us his State of the Union address. He will then speak and answer questions in an intensive debate. I expect that you will make great use of this opportunity in order to help the President of the Commission understand the positions taken by the House and its political groups.
