Special counter-terrorism committee to start work
The list of candidate MEPs to form the 30-strong special committee on counter-terrorism (TERR) is up for a vote on Tuesday. Its first meeting is scheduled for Thursday.
Parliament decided in July to set up a special committee to address practical and legislative shortcomings in the fight against terrorism across the EU. During its 12-month tenure, the committee is to deliver a mid-term and a final report setting out its factual findings, plus recommendations.
Following the plenary vote on the list of committee members, the committee will choose its chair and rapporteur(s) at its constitutive meeting on Thursday morning in Strasbourg.
Vote: Tuesday, 12 September
