State of the Union

European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker will present his first ‘State of the Union’ speech setting out the commission’s policy priorities for the coming year. The EU’s migration and refugee crisis is likely to dominate following expected commission proposals for a refugee relocation scheme.

ECR Group leader Syed Kamall will respond to the speech, warning that compulsory schemes risk intensifying the counterproductive finger pointing that has characterised this crisis in recent weeks. Instead, he will argue that EU leaders need to work together in a cooperative manner and ask what contribution each country is willing to make to tackling the crisis both at source and in the EU.

The State of the Union will be followed by a specific debate on the migration and refugee crisis.

Commission proposals on migration: Tuesday afternoon

State of the Union debate: Wednesday @ 09.00

Migration and refugee debate: Wednesday @ 11.30

Dairy crisis

EU Ministers will meet in Brussels to discuss the growing crisis in European agriculture, and especially the dairy industry. ECR agriculture spokesman James Nicholson wrote a report that was adopted by the parliament earlier this year on measures that could be taken to protect farmers more from price volatility.

The cases of Eston Kohver, Oleg Santsov and Alexander Kolchenko

The parliament will debate and adopt a resolution on the cases of Eston Kohver, Oleg Santsov and Alexander Kolchenko, who have been sentenced to jail terms by Russia in highly political circumstances. Eston Kohver was an Estonian policeman abducted in Estonia and sentenced to 15 years. Oleg Sentsov and Alexander Kolchenko were Ukrainian filmmakers. ECR foreign affairs spokesman Charles Tannock will speak in the debates.
