Following the hearing of commissioner-designate for agriculture Janusz Wojciechowski on 1 October, MEPs asked him additional written questions and have invited him to a resumed hearing. This hearing will take place Tuesday 8 October at 11.00 CET and will last for an hour and a half.

Before the European Parliament votes the new European Commission, led by Ursula von der Leyen, into office, parliamentary committees assess the suitability of the commissioners-designate.


Each candidate commissioner is invited to a live-streamed, three-hour hearing in front of the committee or committees responsible for their proposed portfolio. The hearings take place between Monday 30 September and Tuesday 8 October.
