Question for written answer E-002013/2020
to the Council
Rule 138
Pernando Barrena Arza (GUE/NGL), Diana Riba i Giner (Verts/ALE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Adoption of ‘Corona bonds’ and emergency economic measures by the European Council

The lack of plans and of a strong solidarity-based response, given the refusal by some Member States to the issuing of ‘corona bonds’ — a joint debt instrument guaranteed by European countries on a mutual basis — as called for by eight Member States, has in the eyes of the European public called into question the need for an urgent and solidarity-based response to the social and economic effects of the pandemic. At its most recent plenary session, the European Parliament called for the adoption of solidarity-based emergency economic measures, criticising the delay in their adoption and calling for the debt to be mutualised.

1. Does the Council intend to reconsider the question of adopting significant and robust measures taking due account of economic solidarity?

2. Will it reconsider the issuing of ‘corona bonds’?
