The IMCO Rapporteur and MEPs tabled 847 amendments. The Compromise Amendments have been drawn up and the committee will vote on the final list on 14th July.
The prospects of a favorable vote that rejects most of the Commission proposals are good. The statements by MEPs during the debate on the amendments indicate majority support for our arguments.
This has been achieved through careful discourse with the MEPsand we shall continue along that path. We draw your attention that no matter how upset you may be with the EU you must always retain a polite and civil attitude in your contacts with MEPs. Focus on the S&D members as the more we win over the greater our chances of success.
When you read our article about the debate, you will see that:
- EPP, ECR, ALDE clearly support a totally watered down version of the Commission proposal
- S&D and the Greens are for more stringent measures.
- EFDD and ENF support an outright rejection of the proposal.
