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

26-03-2019

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.

Establishing a European Labour Authority (A8-0391/2018 - Jeroen Lenaers) NL

11-12-2018

De VVD steunt het Commissievoorstel om een Europese Arbeidsautoriteit op te richten. Echter, het verslag waarover gestemd is in het Parlement geeft deze autoriteit een te grote rol in zaken die onderdeel zijn van de bevoegdheden van de lidstaten.

Establishing a Programme for the Environment and Climate Action (LIFE) (A8-0397/2018 - Gerben-Jan Gerbrandy) NL

11-12-2018

De VVD is voor effectief milieubeheer en de aanpak van klimaatverandering. In de periode 2014-2020 is er voor het milieu en klimaatactieprogramma (LIFE) 3,45 miljard beschikbaar. In de voorgestelde Europese meerjarenbegroting 2021-2027 wordt dit bedrag verhoogd tot 5,45 miljard. Het Europees Parlement stelt in dit verslag een stijging voor van nog eens 2 miljard. De verhoging tot een bedrag van 7,2 miljard vindt de VVD onvoldoende onderbouwd en behoort tot het debat over de nieuwe Europese meerjarenbegroting. Daarom onthoudt de VVD zich van stemmen.

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
