New rules to curb litter from the most commonly found single-use plastics on our beaches were adopted today in the European Parliament's Environment Committee. MEPs voted to specifically address the 10 single-use plastics that are most often found washed up or still in the sea, as well as lost and abandoned fishing gear. These items together account for 70% of all marine litter.

ECJ: MEPs can vote on budget in Brussels if necessary

Today’s “common sense” court ruling which will allow MEPs to vote in Brussels on budget matters in certain circumstances has been welcomed by ECR MEP Ashley Fox. The European Court of Justice ruled against France’s claim that the European Parliament’s adoption of the EU’s 2017 budget at an “exceptional” sitting in Brussels, and not in Strasbourg, breached the EU treaty. The ECJ’s ruling today says that MEPs were entitled to adopt the annual budget in Brussels if necessary to meet time limits set out in the EU’s Treaties.
