Details

Stressing that the previous report’s failure had given a negative picture of the European Parliament, the rapporteur welcomed the fact that the main parts of the new report had been unanimously approved during the vote in committee. Mr Ford stressed that sanctions could be applied in the event of any breach of the Code of Conduct. He then accepted the amendment on the keeping of a register, presented by Mr Donnelly (EPP, UK). The latter, on behalf of the EPP Group, was against Amendment No 1 which specified that only those registered assistants working exclusively as assistants would have access to Parliament. He was also against Amendment No 12 which required the submission each year, with a view to securing the extension of lobbyists’ passes, of a report on their activities carried out with the aim of influencing decision-making in Parliament. Mr Wijsenbeek (ELDR, NL) also said that the annual report was a bureaucratic nonsense. On behalf of the GUE-NGL Group, Mr EPHREMIDIS (EL) considered that the report in question did not achieve the desired effect. While accepting that this represented progress compared to the previous version, Mrs AELVOET (V, BE) regretted that there was no longer any parallel approach between the Ford report and the Nordmann report which provided for the declaration of interests from which Members might benefit.
