Order of business

  Daniel Dalton (ECR). – Mr President, the Christchurch attack reminded us all that we need to do more in this area; we can all agree on that. The question is how. I am the rapporteur of this file. The Commission has already made a legislative proposal on this. We are negotiating it at this moment. At this moment compromises are circling. We are having shadows’ meetings. We are going to vote on this in the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) next week, and it’s going to be discussed in plenary next month. So maybe I won’t, but you will all get a chance to debate this at length next month. That is the proper parliamentary process, and we should follow it.

It is not right for the Commission to be able to give a statement to us on their proposal while we are in the midst of negotiating it in committee here. So, whilst I have sympathy with the approach from the European Peoples’ Party (PPE), I think that we should reject this request.
