Banking Union/ Single Resolution Mechanism

Parliament’s economics committee will vote on proposals to create a Eurozone arrangement for restructuring or winding down banks in the event of major difficulties. The next phase of the so-called Banking Union would see a single resolution authority empowered to make such decisions, with a single resolution fund to prevent taxpayers from having to bail out banks again. ECR shadow rapporteur Vicky Ford believes that common resolution mechanisms are a necessary step to shore up the eurozone’s banking system, but the vexed question of where the resolution mechanism’s funding will come from, has yet to be answered. She also wants to ensure that non-eurozone banks have sufficient safeguards in place to ensure their depositors are not required to bail in failing banks in the eurozone, to which they may have subsidiaries.

Frontex sea search and rescue operations

The civil liberties committee will vote on new measures to beef up the role of the EU’s borders agency – Frontex – so that it plays a greater role in preventing tragedies in the Mediterranean. ECR justice and home affairs spokesman Timothy Kirkhope believes that this approach is the right one.

Vote: Thursday @ 10.30

European Investigation Order

The civil liberties committee will also vote on plans to improve cooperation between EU police authorities when investigating major crimes, under the so-called European Investigation Order. The investigative measures – based on the principle of mutual recognition of judicial decisions – include the hearing of witnesses, searches and seizures as well as, with additional safeguards, interceptions of telecommunications, observation, infiltration and monitoring of bank accounts. ECR justice and home affairs spokesman Timothy Kirkhope supports the improvement that have been made to the proposals to introduce a number of safeguards, including the need for proportionality, a judicial check, and grounds for non-recognition or non-execution, as well as grounds for national security interests or immunities established in the executing state.
