Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Isabella Tovaglieri (ID)
 Subject: Priorities after COVID-19, and the Green Deal

The Green Deal, presented by the Commission a few months ago, involves a set of acts – some of which are already under discussion – which are supposed to follow up on the proposals set out in the Green Deal.

In the EU Member States and the European Union, the COVID-19 epidemic has had an extraordinary and unforeseen economic impact which is radically changing the economic foundations on which the Green Deal was built.

However, the debates on some of these acts have not been suspended, but are under way, despite the fact that the economic and social outcome of the pandemic is still uncertain.

In view of this situation:

1. Does the Commission consider it efficient and appropriate to continue scrutinising major Green Deal legislation (such as climate legislation) before the post-epidemic situation has stabilised and, above all, when the European Parliament is not fully operational?

2. In its view, are the initial Green Deal economic bases – and hence the subsequent acts to be adopted, as planned – still valid, in spite of the profound social and economic changes the epidemic is causing?

3. Does the Commission think the Green Deal, as it stands at present, is the best response the EU can give to businesses and citizens to promote recovery under the current economic conditions?
