The Week Ahead – 27th February to 3rd March

Take a look at the upcoming agenda for the ECR group.

Energy security

The parliament will vote on proposals steered through by ECR MEP prof. Zdzislaw Krasnodębski which will see EU states share information on energy agreements they reach with non-EU countries, to help prevent these contracts from threatening the EU’s overall energy security. The proposal makes up a key plank of the so-called Energy Union package.

Vehicle emissions

The inquiry committee looking into the emissions scandal will vote on its findings. ECR lead MEP on the committee, Hans-Olaf Henkel, believes the European Commission failed to do its job because EU legislation defined vague derogations from the ban on defeat devices and that way allowed unfair competition among car producers e.g. when an outdated and excessively polluting engine technology could be justified.
