Week Ahead - 9th - 13th December

MEPs are in Brussels this week where there will be a special plenary session on Wednesday to discuss the Green Deal, which is set to proposed by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Wednesday. There will be committees and other events in the Parliament and the European Council meets on Thursday and Friday. Read on for more details.

Extraordinary session to debate Green New Deal

On Wednesday the European Commission is expected to publish a raft of new environmental and climate laws as part of the ‘Green New Deal’ promised by President von der Leyen. A special plenary session will be convened by Parliament in Brussels for the same afternoon.

ECR MEPs believe that the Green Deal must deliver policies that are credible, science-based and achievable, enabling all Member States to follow the same low carbon reduction pathway. We believe this can only happen if there is unanimity in the Council, as has been the case previously. In addition, we also need to ensure sufficient support is provided for our businesses and communities who will be the most affected by the ramping up of climate ambitions and the subsequent dramatic shifts in our economies.

European Council meeting

EU heads of state and government meet on Thursday and Friday next week where they will discuss the Commission’s latest climate proposals as well as the next Multiannual Financial Framework, the EU’s long-term budget for the 2021 – 2028 period.

Opposition to the European Stability Mechanism

On Monday ECR Group co-Chair Raffaele Fitto will be joined at an event by the leader of Fratelli d’Italia, Giorgia Meloni, where they will outline their opposition to the European Stability Mechanism.
