Road safety. The Transport Committee will vote on two pieces of legislation concerning road safety. The first is a draft law that would make driving disqualification decisions apply across the EU.

Currently 40% of traffic offences by non-resident drivers go unpunished (Wednesday).

European Health Data Space.

Music streaming market. The Culture and Education Committee will adopt a series of proposals to address the situation of authors and the loss of cultural diversity in the European music streaming market.
