Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this report. While the agreement reached by the Council this week on the recovery package, Next Generation EU, is very welcome, it is regrettable that the long-term budget, the MFF, is facing cuts to European programmes, particularly in important areas at this time such as research, innovation and health. I look forward to the Council reaching agreement with the Parliament soon.

RT @RichardbrutonTD: Now more than ever we must be able to rely on the accuracy of news on the Climate Crisis. Trusted news sources should vigilantly correct their errors. Last week the Irish Times declined to do so, here is my letter addressing the issue. https://t.co/vU08pimdfQ
