Written explanations of vote

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

Ongoing hearings under article 7(1) of the TEU regarding Poland and Hungary (B9-0032/2020)


The Brexit Party voted against this non-legislative resolution. Principally, the Brexit Party opposes the EU’s infringement proceedings against any sovereign nation. We believe that the governments of these nations, who were democratically elected, unlike many EU lawmakers, have the right to enact the policies on which they have been elected. For these reasons, we voted against calls for further hearings with Poland and Hungary.

Protocol to the Agreement between the EU, Iceland and Norway concerning the criteria and mechanisms for establishing the State responsible for examining a request for asylum lodged in a Member State or in Iceland or Norway regarding the access to Eurodac for law enforcement purposes (A9-0053/2019 - Jadwiga Wiśniewska)


The Brexit Party have voted to abstain on this legislative report. Whilst we support the principle of cooperation with neighboring countries, particularly when this concerns combatting serious crime and terrorism, we cannot support this being facilitated via the EU. As we believe these agreements should be conducted bilaterally, we abstained on this report.

EU-China Agreement on certain aspects of air services (A9-0041/2019 - Tomasz Piotr Poręba)


Brexit Party MEPs have abstained on this consent vote. This is a technical amendment to bring the agreement into line with EU rules, and therefore we felt it most appropriate to abstain.
