Renewing the approval of the active substance glyphosate (Objection pursuant to Rule 106) (B8-0567/2017) DE

24-10-2017

. – Ich habe mich bei dem Entschließungsantrag zur Erneuerung der Genehmigung des Wirkstoffs Glyphosat enthalten, da es sich bei dem Zulassungsverfahren des Pflanzenschutzmittels Glyphosat nicht um eine politische Entscheidung handelt. Die Entscheidung über eine weitere Zulassung wird letztlich von der Europäischen Kommission nach Anhörung eines Expertenausschusses und somit auf fachlich-wissenschaftlicher Basis getroffen.

Authorisation of genetically modified maize 1507 (Objection pursuant to Rule 106) (B8-0568/2017) DE

24-10-2017

Ich habe für den Einspruch gegen die Zulassung der genetisch veränderten Maissorte 1507 gestimmt. Die Auswirkungen von gentechnikveränderten Maissorten auf die Landwirtschaft und die Umwelt sind derzeit noch nicht abschätzbar. Der notwendige Schutz in Österreich kann nur durch ein vollkommenes Verbot des Anbaus von GVO-Pflanzen gewährleistet werden.
Ich berufe mich auf das Subsidiaritätsprinzip und spreche mich somit klar für das Verbot von gentechnisch veränderten Organismen auf österreichischem Boden aus. Österreich muss weiterhin frei von GVO-veränderten Organismen bleiben, um die Interessen der Konsumentinnen und Konsumenten im Bereich der Lebensmittelsicherheit zu wahren.

Authorisation of genetically modified soybean 305423 x 40-3-2 (Objection pursuant to Rule 106) (B8-0570/2017) DE

24-10-2017

Ich habe für den Einspruch gegen die Zulassung der genetisch veränderten Sojabohnen der Sorte 305423 x 40-3-2 gestimmt. Die Auswirkungen von gentechnikveränderten Sojabohnensorten auf die Landwirtschaft und die Umwelt sind derzeit noch nicht abschätzbar. Der notwendige Schutz in Österreich kann nur durch ein vollkommenes Verbot des Anbaus von GVO-Pflanzen gewährleistet werden.
