MEPs to remind Commission to brief them on talks on international agreements
Parliament has the right to be informed of the progress of negotiations on international agreements without having to ask, as established by the Treaty of Lisbon and confirmed by several Court of Justice rulings. MEPs will remind the European Commission of this obligation during a debate on Thursday.
In an oral question prepared by the Civil Liberties Committee they will ask the Commission how it plans to ensure that all relevant information is automatically forwarded to Parliament “in an exhaustive manner at all stages of the procedure”.
Debate: Thursday, 9 June
