Value added tax on COVID-19 testing kits

Question for written answer  E-000879/2023
to the Commission
Rule 138
Ciarán Cuffe (Verts/ALE)

The Commission proposal of 28 October 2020[1]for a Council directive waiving value added tax on COVID-19 testing kits was allowed to expire[2]at the end of 2022. This is despite the hundreds of deaths occurring every day in the EU from COVID-19[3]and the risk of new variants emerging from the COVID-19 surge in China[4].

In the light of the above:

Why has the Commission not renewed its proposal for the aforementioned Council directive?
