Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Alicia Homs Ginel, Lina Gálvez Muñoz, Estrella Durá Ferrandis
 Subject: Assistance mechanism for the self-employed.

The economies of the Member States and of the EU are being seriously hit by the pandemic and the measures that are being taken to address it, such as the lock-down, which, together with the uncertainty that exists, are paralysing economic activity to a significant extent. In this connection, the European Institutions are taking action to support the emergency plans of the Member States and to stabilise the economy.

In addition, individual Member States are also putting in place emergency plans to help preserve businesses, employment and wages so as to ensure that citizens continue to have an income and are thus able to meet their financial commitments and everyday needs.

However, there is one group which, due to their specific characteristics and their varied nature is particularly vulnerable in this context and they are the self-employed.

In this connection, does the Commission plan to design a mechanism similar to the Youth Guarantee scheme to assist Member States and European self-employed workers who have to contend with the spreading pandemic, the lock-down and the recovery period that will follow?
