Use of genetically modified food and feed (A8-0305/2015 - Giovanni La Via)
MPphoto
 
 

  David Martin (S&D), in writing. ‒ I voted against this proposal. By stating that Member States must provide ‘compelling reasons’ to justify their opt-out while respecting the Internal Market and WTO trade rules, the proposal fails to ensure the necessary legal certainty and adequate tools for Member States that wish to lawfully restrict or prohibit the use of GM food and feed on their territory. Likewise, the Commission has, to the detriment of legal certainty, not provided any definition of the term ‘use’ in its proposal.
