15 June 2015

15th – 19th June – Brussels

Cloning, Draghi, Corporate taxation, Copyright, Economic governance, CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery in the North Sea and Waterloo.

Cloning

The agriculture and environment committees will vote on a proposal to suspend the use of cloning in farm animals, the placing on the market of live animal clones and embryo clones and food from cloned animals.
ECR agriculture spokesman James Nicholson MEP believes that scientific evidence should determine the committee’s position and, with the evidence that cloning can lead to animal welfare concerns, a provisional ban is appropriate, at least until the processes and techniques are significantly improved.

Vote: Tuesday

Draghi

ECB President Mario Draghi will appear before the economics committee, with Greece, Quantitative Easing, and future governance of the eurozone likely to be the major topics. ECR Vice-President and Greek MEP Notis Marias will ask a question of Mr Draghi.

Meeting: Monday afternoon

Corporate taxation

The European Commission is set to relaunch plans for a common consolidated corporate tax base in the EU, in light of recent allegations regarding corporate taxation arrangements in Europe.
ECR spokesman on the parliament’s temporary committee on taxation, Morten Messerschmidt MEP, believes that more transparency is the answer to tackling aggressive tax planning, but moves towards greater harmonisation of taxation policy risk seriously undermining EU member states’ sovereignty, and European competitiveness.

Announcement: Wednesday lunchtime

Copyright

Parliament’s legal affairs committee will vote on a report looking at the implementation of EU Copyright legislation, ahead of expected proposals from the European Commission later this year.
ECR shadow rapporteur Angel Dzhambazki MEP believes the report should strike the right balance between the desire for greater portability of content services across the EU with the need to provide an adequate level of protection for rights holders.

Vote: Tuesday

Economic governance

The economics committee will vote against a report on economic governance within the eurozone. ECR shadow Bernd Lucke MEP is opposed to the proposals to create more flexibility in the fiscal rules, and efforts to deepen the single currency, including the creation of a euro area fiscal capacity based on specific own-resources, a common deposit guarantee scheme, the inclusion of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) into Union law, a minimum wage or income mechanism, a euro area mechanism to allow debt reduction and upgrading euro area external representations.

Vote: Tuesday

CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery in the North Sea

Ian Duncan MEP is hosting the European launch of findings from a comprehensive appraisal of CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery in the North Sea. The event will focus on achieving a low-carbon future for the North Sea and catalysing a new CO2 storage industry to serve Europe for the next 100 years.

Reception: outside room A3G2 @ 18.00 — Film screening: 19.30 in room A3G2
