MEPs to debate impact of Russian import restrictions on EU road hauliers 

Parliament will debate the harm Russia's ban on some imports of food and agricultural products is doing to the EU transport sector on Monday evening. MEPs say this has been neglected by the Commission although it has already introduced short-term market support measures for producers of fruit, vegetables and dairy produce worth more than €155 million.

 

MEPs will ask the Commission for data on the impact on the transport sector and for information on possible EU measures to prevent further losses.

 

Procedure: Question for oral answer by the Commission

Procedure Code: 2015/2541(RSP)

Debate: Monday, 9 March
