Nuclear decommissioning assistance programme of the Ignalina nuclear power plant in Lithuania (A8-0413/2018 - Rebecca Harms)  
 

I voted in favour of this report, which makes crucial adjustments to the European Commission’s proposal with regard to the EU’s financial commitments to decommissioning this nuclear power plant. This report proposes a path forward to decommission the nuclear plant while minimising consequences in a variety of fields.

Annual report on the control of the financial activities of the European Investment Bank for 2017 (A8-0479/2018 - Georgi Pirinski)  
 

I voted in favour of this report, which focuses on the EIB’s potential to ensure value-adding strategic public investment. It also lays out recommendations for the EIB to spread its resources more evenly across the EU.

Cross-border restitution claims of works of art and cultural goods looted in armed conflicts and wars (A8-0465/2018 - Pavel Svoboda)  
 

I voted in favour of this report. We cannot allow the organised and institutionalised theft of art works that took place during the Second World War to be repeated in the case of modern day conflicts and we have to reinforce the legal framework to prevent this at a European level.
