The Week Ahead in the European Parliament – November 30, 2018


Summary

Next week will be a committee and political group week in the European Parliament.

MEPs will spend a good portion of their week with their political groups, where they will prepare for the plenary session in Strasbourg, scheduled for December 10-13, 2018. They will discuss, among other topics, the EU-Japan trade agreement, the digital services tax, the recommendations of the Special Committee on Terrorism or protecting workers from exposure to carcinogens.

On Monday, the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (“LIBE”) will vote on two proposals aimed at fighting terrorism and organised crime. The first concerns strengthening the ID cards and residence documents of EU citizens. The second concerns rules on the use of financial and information for the prevention, detection, investigation or prosecution of certain criminal offences.

On Thursday, MEPs from the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (“IMCO”) will vote on a report by Christel Schaldemose MEP, concerning a proposal for a Regulation on promoting fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services (the “P2B” Regulation). Among other changes, the Parliament’s proposed amendments would extend the scope of the Regulation to cover operating systems as well as platforms. See the draft report here.
