Counter terrorism - vote to set up new committee 

A proposal to establish a temporary committee on counter‑terrorism will be put to the vote on Thursday. The new committee will examine what is needed to improve anti-terror cooperation in the EU. In the past, MEPs have in particular stressed the need for increased cooperation and information-sharing among member states.

A temporary committee is a special committee established for a maximum of 12 months, which may be extended.


Vote:  Thursday 6 July
