Most recent activities

Parliament’s right of initiative (A9-0142/2022 - Paulo Rangel)

09-06-2022
Written explanations of vote

I supported this text, which seeks to assess the EP right of legislative initiative and identify effective ways to strengthen it. The EP has a direct right of initiative in certain institutional matters but lacks a general direct right of initiative. The report endeavours to improve the current situation, notably by calling for inter-institutional arrangements to prevent institutional deadlock on issues where the EP has a direct right of initiative.

A new trade instrument to ban products made by forced labour (B9-0291/2022)

09-06-2022
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this report, which obliges companies to disclose information concerning subsidiaries, suppliers and contractors in the supply chain to public authorities upon request and with due regard for commercial confidentiality, in order to ensure the banning of products from a particular region if there is imposed or forced labour.

EU/Mauritania Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement and Implementing Protocol (A9-0148/2022 - Izaskun Bilbao Barandica)

08-06-2022
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this report which concerns a key EU fisheries agreement with third countries and permits vessels from a range of EU countries, including Ireland to operate in the Mauritanian EEZ.
