Reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment (debate)

  Bill Etheridge (EFDD), blue-card question. – Thank you, sir, for the good-spirited acceptance of the question. My question is this: we all agree that we need to make changes and improve the environment, and this is a particularly important issue. However, manufacturing and production always need time to change. You stressed several times in your remarks: urgency, urgency, urgency. Would you not accept that the speed of the motion that we have before us will actually lead to job losses? And, if it does lead to job losses, how many are acceptable? 500? 1 000? 10 000? Where does it stop? Where do we take into account the needs of manufacturers, as opposed to the prerogative for change?
