Conclusions of the extraordinary European Council meeting of 23 April 2020 - New MFF, own resources and Recovery plan (debate)

  Mairead McGuinness (PPE), in writing. – I welcome the European Council meeting of 23 April 2020 that endorsed the roadmap towards lifting COVID-19 containment measures and a joint Roadmap for Recovery. The meeting also discussed important safety nets for workers and businesses. The European Commission has announced it will table a revised proposal for a Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the years 2021-2027, together with a recovery instrument targeted at the effects of the COVID-19 crisis. I support the European Parliament’s call for a strong recovery plan commensurate with the size of the challenge we face, financed by recovery bonds guaranteed by the EU budget, and for an ambitious new MFF that both reflects the measures needed to address the crisis and the political priorities of the new Commission. As the resolution notes, the recovery plan and the new MFF must be aligned in structure and objectives. However, I do not support the resolution’s suggestions for EU own resources that would infringe on Irish tax sovereignty.
