ECR adopts a motion on Luxleaks

At its group meeting on the 25th November, the ECR Group adopted a resolution on the ongoing ‘LuxLeaks’ saga and the state aid investigation that the European Commission is conducting into Luxembourg’s tax arrangements.

At its group meeting on the 25th November, the ECR Group adopted a resolution on the ongoing ‘LuxLeaks’ saga and the state aid investigation that the European Commission is conducting into Luxembourg’s tax arrangements.

The ECR Group had proposed to other group leaders in the Parliament’s Conference of Presidents that this resolution be tabled to the parliament, as an alternative to the censure motion proposed by the EFDD group and the Non Attached, but other political group leaders rejected the request.

ECR MEPs were not satisfied with the binary option being presented to them of supporting the censure motion, or effectively letting President Juncker off the hook for questions that he has so far not answered satisfactorily. Therefore, the ECR is publishing the resolution that it would have submitted to the plenary, and will abstain in the censure vote.

An ECR spokesman said:

“The ECR believes there are questions that need to be addressed by President Juncker regarding the Luxleaks investigation.

“We were disappointed that the other groups in the parliament did not allow Motions for Resolution to be proposed to wind up this debate.

“We were presented with the binary options of either supporting the censure or giving a vote of confidence in President Juncker’s handling of this affair. We want to put on record our concerns and questions about the investigation that is being conducted by the commission.

“Therefore we have adopted the resolution that we would have wanted to submit to the plenary, and we have decided to abstain on this censure motion.”
