Report on financial crimes, tax evasion and tax avoidance (A8-0170/2019 - Jeppe Kofod, Luděk Niedermayer) NL  
 

De VVD steunt de bestrijding van belastingontwijking en -ontduiking. Er worden hiervoor veel verschillende maatregelen geïmplementeerd die op internationaal niveau zijn afgesproken. Extra maatregelen, zoals nieuwe Europese belastingen of het opgeven van het Nederlandse veto in de Raad zijn een aantasting van de Nederlandse soevereiniteit en dus onacceptabel. De VVD heeft daarom tegen dit verslag gestemd.

Amendments to Parliament's Rules of Procedure (A8-0462/2018 - Richard Corbett) NL  
 

De VVD-delegatie heeft tijdens de stemming over "Amendments to Parliament's Rules of Procedure" per ongeluk tweemaal verkeerd gestemd, over een amendement over transparantie en tijdens de eindstemming. Deze fouten zijn nu hersteld.

Findings and recommendations of the Special Committee on Terrorism (A8-0374/2018 - Monika Hohlmeier, Helga Stevens) NL  
 

De VVD steunt de hoofdlijnen van het verslag over de Conclusies en aanbevelingen van de Bijzondere Commissie terrorisme. Uitgangspunt van het Europese antiterreurbeleid is intensieve samenwerking tussen de nationale inlichtingendiensten en het versterken van bestaande Europese veiligheidsinfrastructuur (agentschappen zoals Europol). Het optuigen van nieuwe Europese instellingen is niet de geijkte weg om de terreurdreiging effectief aan te pakken.

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
