Fondo Europeo de Adaptación a la Globalización (2014-2020) (A9-0015/2019 - Vilija Blinkevičiūtė) EN

22-10-2019

The Brexit Party have voted to abstain on this legislative report. Firstly, we do not believe that a no-deal Brexit would lead to significant job losses. That being said, as the UK would have left the EU by the time this legislation takes effect, and the UK would therefore have no legal obligation to contribute to this fund, the decision should be a matter for the remaining Member States to take as to how they wish this for this fund to be utilised. For this reason, the Brexit Party abstained on this report.

Autorizaciones de pesca para los buques de la Unión en aguas del Reino Unido y operaciones de pesca de los buques pesqueros del Reino Unido en aguas de la Unión (A9-0014/2019 - Chris Davies) EN

22-10-2019

. ‒ The Brexit Party voted against this legislation for access to waters between the EU and the UK because the proposed arrangement is in practice very one-sided: the EU gets far more benefit than the UK and would therefore be able to continue to plunder UK waters, just as it has for decades.

Ejecución y financiación del presupuesto general de la Unión Europea en 2020 en relación con la retirada del Reino Unido de la Unión (A9-0018/2019 - Johan Van Overtveldt) EN

22-10-2019

. ‒ Brexit Party MEPs voted against this piece of legislation. This proposal is to allow the UK to continue making full budgetary contributions to the EU in 2020, in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The UK will have to meet a number of conditions such as adhering to a deadline to inform the Commission in writing that payments will be made, that the payment schedule is made on time and into a specific bank account, that the UK allows OLAF and EU auditing of EU funds on its territory.
This will mean the UK can still get EU funding for 2020, that UK entities can bid for most (but not all) EU public tenders, and ensure payments for EU contracts to public and private entities in 2020 continue. However, some rights for the UK will be curtailed such as not having representation on management committees or expert groups.
The Brexit Party voted against as we want a clean-break Brexit to stop making full budget payments to the EU and we believe that the UK Government should make up the shortfall for UK entities and universities that are currently receiving EU funds.

Períodos de aplicación de los Reglamentos (UE) 2019/501 y 2019/502 (Comisión de Transportes y Turismo) EN

22-10-2019

. ‒ The Brexit Party voted in favour of this urgency procedure. The report seeks to ensure that air and road travel is not disrupted in the case of a no-deal Brexit by updating the date of implementation to take into account the seven-month extension, as the dates in the original legislation will soon be expiring. The Brexit Party voted in favour as we support the European Parliament’s efforts to prepare for no-deal by putting contingencies in place to ensure that air and road travel is not disrupted, despite the European Union’s insistence that this would not be possible, and therefore proving that future and sincere cooperation is feasible in a no-deal scenario.

Solicitud de aplicación del procedimiento de urgencia: Períodos de aplicación de los Reglamentos (UE) 2019/501 y 2019/502 ( - Karima Delli) (votación) EN

10-10-2019

. ‒ The Brexit party voted in favour of this urgency procedure. The report seeks to ensure that air and road travel is not disrupted in case of no deal Brexit, updating the date of implementation to take into account the seven months extension. The Brexit party voted in favour as we support bringing forward this report in order to prepare for Brexit.

Acuerdo de Cooperación entre Eurojust y Serbia (A9-0009/2019 - Juan Fernando López Aguilar) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party have voted to abstain on this report. Whilst data exchanges and cooperation, particularly for the purpose of combatting serious crime, are very important we do not support this being facilitated at EU level. However, if the sovereign nation of Serbia wishes to participate it would not be appropriate to block their decision. Therefore, as we support the underlying principle of cooperation and data sharing to combat serious crime, but not the EU facilitating it, we felt that abstaining was most suitable.

Proyecto de presupuesto rectificativo n.º 4/2019: reducción de los créditos de pago y de compromiso en línea con las previsiones actualizadas de los gastos y con la actualización de los ingresos (recursos propios) (A9-0012/2019 - John Howarth) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted against this budgetary proposal. We would have supported the original Commission proposal as it reduced the amount of money in a number of EU budget lines and would lead to a reduction in Member States’ contributions for this year, thereby saving British taxpayers’ money. However, the rapporteur UK Labour MEP amended this resolution to redeploy the savings, meaning it would be spent in other areas of the EU budget instead of saving taxpayers’ money, so we voted against.

Ajustes de los importes movilizados del Instrumento de Flexibilidad para 2019 para la migración, la afluencia de refugiados y las amenazas a la seguridad (A9-0013/2019 - John Howarth) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted in favour of this budgetary proposal. The original Commission proposal was to reduce a payment plan for future EU spending in the field of migration and security. This proposal was linked to the Draft Amending Budget Number 4, which should have led to a reduction in Member States’ contributions; however, a Labour MEP managed to make amendments to reverse this. In this case, however, the proposition was to support the original proposal to cut EU funding, not the amendments by the rapporteur, so we voted in favour.

Objeción con arreglo al artículo 112 del Reglamento interno: sustancias activas, incluida la flumioxazina (B9-0103/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit party abstained on this motion for resolution on active substances including flumioxazine. The report criticises the Commission, as they continue to extend regulated acts on allowing this substance when there are concerns as to how safe it is. The Brexit party believe that the Commission should not act in an undemocratic way without being held accountable; however, we cannot support the motion as it also calls on the Commission to create new legislation.

Objeción con arreglo al artículo 112 del Reglamento interno: maíz modificado genéticamente MZHG0JG (SYN-ØØØJG-2) (B9-0107/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted against this resolution because it should be a decision made at nation state level and not by the EU for all 28 Member States.

Objeción con arreglo al artículo 112 del Reglamento interno: soja modificada genéticamente A2704-12 (ACS-GMØØ5-3) (B9-0105/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted against this resolution because it should be a decision made at nation state level and not by the EU for all 28 Member States.

Injerencia extranjera y desinformación en los procesos electorales democráticos nacionales y europeos (B9-0108/2019, B9-0111/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party has voted against this non-legislative resolution. The Brexit Party wholeheartedly supports free and fair elections, free speech and democratic accountability. These principles, in part, are integral in our cause to leave the European Union. We believe that reports of Russian electoral interference have already been exposed as baseless propaganda in order to shut down debate and discredit legitimate democratic exercises, such as the UK referendum. Furthermore, the Brexit Party voted against the third amendment because it maliciously – and incorrectly – stated that the Leave.eu campaign received funding from foreign actors despite the National Crime Agency clearing Leave.eu of these allegations in September.

Marco Financiero Plurianual 2021-2027 y recursos propios: es hora de responder a las expectativas de los ciudadanos (B9-0110/2019, B9-0112/2019, B9-0113/2019) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party voted against this non-legislative, non-binding resolution. The Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) is the long-term budget for the EU. The resolution called for an MFF of over €1.3 trillion and more EU action and funding in areas such as defence, climate change, migration, foreign affairs to name a few. They will also be seeking to phase out national rebates and bring in new ways to fund the EU budget such as ‘Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base’ and a single use plastic tax.

Empleo y políticas sociales en la zona del euro (A9-0016/2019 - Yana Toom) EN

10-10-2019

The Brexit Party has voted to abstain on this non-legislative report. Whilst we fully support many sentiments of this report, such as the need to tackle unemployment, poverty and inequalities, we oppose the EU’s vision on how to resolve these issues. Moreover, with Brexit on the horizon and the fact that the report largely focusses on the euro area, which the UK is not part of, it felt more appropriate to abstain on this vote.
