Other parliamentary activities

Written explanations of vote

Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Gender Equality in EU’s foreign and security policy (A9-0145/2020 - Ernest Urtasun)


I endorsed this report. Our message is that we need European agriculture with simplified procedures and fewer rules for a market-oriented sector. The proposal includes measures to improve the current system of vine replanting authorisations and the EU school fruit, vegetables and milk scheme.

Common agricultural policy - support for strategic plans to be drawn up by Member States and financed by the EAGF and by the EAFRD (A8-0200/2019 - Peter Jahr)


The common agricultural policy is one of the EU’s oldest and most important European policies.
The Commission proposal introduces a new delivery model under which Member States will be able to tailor their programmes. Member States will have to draw up a strategic plan covering the whole period, setting out how they intend to attain the objectives, both in the area of direct payments and rural development. This means more responsibility for the Member States.
The Commission will approve each plan, and monitor progress towards objectives and targets using a set of result indicators agreed at EU level.
The changes to the common agricultural policy bring new obligations and incentives for farmers in the field of environment and climate action, encourage organic farming by supporting small and medium—sized farms, and provide protection to seasonal workers in agriculture by making the payment of the subsidy to farms conditional on respect for workers’ rights. I voted in favour.

Common agricultural policy: financing, management and monitoring (A8-0199/2019 - Ulrike Müller)


I voted in favour of this report. One of the most important features introduced is a new complaint mechanism. Those who receive European funds for rural development will have a direct line with the European Commission for unresolved issues in their country. Beneficiaries who consider that they have been wronged in any way in matters related to the development of projects, the settlement of expenses, or even the process of public tenders will be able to file complaints directly to the European Commission.

Written questions

Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III
