The week ahead 17th – 21st June 2013

17th – 21st June 2013. Posted workers. Prism. Digital Single Market. Common Fisheries reform. Financial Transaction Tax. Banking reform.

Posted workers

The employment committee will vote on proposals to strengthen the protections for workers posted to another EU country, so that they can exercise their internal market rights to provide services across the EU. ECR shadow rapporteur Milan Cabrnoch supports the view of the centre-right rapporteur in seeking better enforcement of rights without creating new barriers and administrative burdens for workers. He will oppose efforts by the Left to hijack the legislation to push for more protectionism and less choice for workers in where they wish to offer services in the EU.

Prism

MEPs in the civil liberties committee will meet with Commission Vice-President Viviane Reding, where the recent ‘Prism’ surveillance programme is likely to be discussed. ECR home affairs spokesman Timothy Kirkhope MEP spoke in the parliamentary debate on the matter last week. He called for all of the facts to be known and considered before the Parliament takes a position on the issue. For a copy of his speech go to

Debate: Wednesday @ 15.00

Digital Single Market

The internal market committee will vote on a resolution co-authored by ECR committee chairman Malcolm Harbour, which sets out an agenda for completing the digital single market ahead of a European Commission initiative. Making the Single Market ‘go digital’ has been a major priority for Mr Harbour’s committee, and the agenda was reflected in the European Commission’s recent ‘Single Market Act 2’ package of measures. It will also be discussed at a European Council meeting in the autumn.

Vote: Tuesday @ 10.15

Common Fisheries reform

The fisheries committee will vote to endorse the agreements reached between national governments and the parliament on reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, and also the organisation of the marketplace, which was steered through the parliament by ECR fisheries committee Vice-President Struan Stevenson MEP.

Vote: Tuesday @ 09.00

Financial Transaction Tax

MEPs in the economics committee will vote on the commission’s second attempt to introduce a Financial Transaction Tax after its first attempt was rejected by national governments. The second version will see 11 EU states sign up to the proposals under ‘enhanced cooperation’. ECR shadow rapporteur Ivo Strejcek is opposed to the tax, and he has concerns that the current proposal is of questionable legality because it will reach beyond the 11 countries subscribing to it.

Vote: Tuesday @ 10.00

Banking reform

The economics committee will adopt a series of suggestions for reform of the EU’s banking sector, to ensure they serve the wider economy. Among the suggestions are the separation of retail banking activities from investment banking. ECR Shadow rapporteur on the suggestions Syed Kamall is generally supportive of the measures.
