The week ahead 5th - 9th December 2016

5th - 9th December 2016. Firearms. Emissions Trading Scheme. Sakharov nominee Mustafa Dzhemilev. Localisation of data hearing. By Africa, For Africa.

Firearms

The parliament, council and commission will try to find a workable agreement on EU Firearms legislation, with ECR rapporteur Vicky Ford working to ensure that any agreement found respects the rights of legal firearms owners including museums, military re-enactors and those involved in the film industry. In addition, the talks aim to close a loophole which allowed certain firearms to be considered as deactivated when in reality they were readily able to be reactivated. Such weapons were used in last year’s Paris terrorist attacks.
A press conference has been scheduled for Tuesday morning.
Trilogue: Monday night

Emissions Trading Scheme
The environment committee is currently scheduled to vote on proposals being steered through the parliament by ECR MEP Ian Duncan which seek to reform the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to make it effective at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, whilst also putting in place measures to prevent ‘carbon leakage’, where companies relocate to countries with more lenient measures.
Vote scheduled: Thursday
