Application of railway safety and interoperability rules within the Channel tunnel (C9-0212/2020)

08-10-2020
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this proposal. In order to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the Channel Fixed Link - which goes between France and the United Kingdom - it is necessary to have a single safety authority responsible for the whole of this infrastructure, which should remain the Intergovernmental Commission. It is therefore essential that we amend the current policy so that the authority will be a body established by a Member State and a third country (the UK, after Brexit).

Decision empowering France to conclude an international agreement concerning the Channel tunnel (C9-0211/2020)

08-10-2020
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this decision, which will give France the authority to negotiate an international agreement with the United Kingdom on all concerns regarding the Channel Fixed Link, on behalf of the European Union.

Organic production: date of application and certain other dates (C9-0286/2020)

08-10-2020
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this proposal. The EU market should include a regulatory framework that encourages the smooth functioning of organic production, which combines the best environmental and climate action practices. A solid, consensual regulatory framework for the next 10 years is therefore key for achieving the objective of 25% of agricultural land for organic farming by 2030, as stated in the Farm to Fork Strategy.

On EP NEWSHUB

RT @dreynders: This morning I participated to a debate in @Europarl_EN Plenary on citizenship & residence schemes. This week @EU_Commission launched infringement proceedings against CY & MT on « golden passports », which undermine the essence of EU citizenship. European values are not for sale. https://t.co/EjEAeiVDO4 

RT @gahler_michael: Each of the nominees represents thousands of protesters. By awarding this year’s #SakharovPrize we wanted to show respect for the resistance to the Lukashenko dictatorship and confirm our recognition of the Coordination Council as the legitimate representative of Belarusians https://t.co/UFGT2PyBbv 

RT @daphnefdtn: We are deeply honoured that Daphne Caruana Galizia has been awarded the Allard Prize for International Integrity. Beyond Daphne’s lifelong efforts to expose corruption in Malta, this award extends to all those whose voices are unwavering in the fight against injustice. https://t.co/OeelRKvuzN
