McClarkin: Socialists have failed to deliver TTIP vote

The European Parliament’s President has – hours before the plenary vote – sent the report on the EU-US trade and investment partnership back to the trade committee after the socialist group descended into chaos over the line it would take.

The European Parliament’s President has – hours before the plenary vote – sent the report on the EU-US trade and investment partnership back to the trade committee after the socialist group descended into chaos over the line it would take.

Responding to the news, European Conservatives and Reformists Group trade spokesman Emma McClarkin MEP, said:

“The decision to postpone this vote is very disappointing. The parliament was ready to vote on its position but President Schulz has pulled the vote in order to save the socialist group’s blushes.

“The socialists agreed a reasonable compromise position in the parliament’s trade committee but their leaders have failed to take their MEPs along with them. This is a socialist shambles that started when they backed out of agreements made in good faith.

“We will continue to argue that an EU-US trade deal has the potential to bring real benefits to consumers and small businesses across Europe. It is time for the socialists to tell us what they believe.”
