Jonathan ARNOTT : Писмени обяснения на вот - 8-ми парламентарен мандат 

Членовете на ЕП могат да представят писмено обяснение на вота си на пленарно заседание. Член 194

Споразумение за сътрудничество в областта на наказателното правосъдие между Евроюст и Кралство Дания (A8-0192/2019 - Claude Moraes) EN  
 

I do not support the role of Eurojust and therefore felt it appropriate to vote against this proposal.

Координация на системите за социална сигурност (A8-0386/2018 - Guillaume Balas) EN  
 

As I oppose harmonisation, I cannot support the principle of coordination of social security systems across the EU. On the amendments, I sought to vote to minimise the scope, and then I voted against on the final vote.

Стандарти за емисиите на CO2 от нови тежкотоварни превозни средства (A8-0354/2018 - Bas Eickhout) EN  
 

I remain concerned by the nature of the European Union’s policies in regards to climate change. I still believe that they are not the right ones to achieve the stated aims, and therefore voted against.

Насърчаване на чисти и енергийноефективни пътни превозни средства (A8-0321/2018 - Andrzej Grzyb) EN  
 

I remain concerned by the nature of the European Union’s policies in regards to climate change. I still believe that they are not the right ones to achieve the stated aims, and therefore I voted against.

Използване на цифрови инструменти и процеси в областта на дружественото право (A8-0422/2018 - Tadeusz Zwiefka) EN  
 

As this ultimately seeks to harmonise company law across the EU, it is consistent with the principles upon which I was elected to vote against.

Презгранични преобразувания, сливания и разделяния (A8-0002/2019 - Evelyn Regner) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Европейски фонд за отбрана (A8-0412/2018 - Zdzisław Krasnodębski) EN  
 

As I oppose the principle of a European Defence Fund, which would be a stepping-stone towards a fully-fledged European Army, I supported a vote to reject the Commission proposal. I then voted against the draft legislative act.

Експозиции под формата на покрити облигации (A8-0384/2018 - Bernd Lucke) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Покрити облигации и публичен надзор върху покритите облигации (A8-0390/2018 - Bernd Lucke) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Програма InvestEU (A8-0482/2018 - José Manuel Fernandes, Roberto Gualtieri) EN  
 

I oppose this for the same reasons that I opposed the EFSI. I cannot support a huge new funding programme; the British people voted to leave the European Union. If it were guaranteed that we would have left before the start of the next MFF, and that this would not affect the UK, I might well have had cause to abstain on the grounds that this is none of the UK’s business.
But that is not so, and I therefore voted against.

Среда за европейско морско обслужване на едно гише (A8-0006/2019 - Deirdre Clune) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Оповестявания във връзка с устойчивите инвестиции и рисковете за устойчивостта (A8-0363/2018 - Paul Tang) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Устойчиви органични замърсители (A8-0336/2018 - Julie Girling) EN  
 

I cannot support: granting additional powers to an EU agency; an increase in EU budgets, which ultimately come from taxpayers; some of the political direction of this agreement.
Therefore, despite believing in strong legislation to ensure public health, I felt obliged to vote against.

Задължение за клиринг, изисквания за отчетност и техники за намаляване на риска за договорите за извънборсови деривати и регистрите на трансакции (A8-0181/2018 - Werner Langen) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Лицензиране на централни контрагенти (ЦК) и признаване на ЦК от трети държави (A8-0190/2018 - Danuta Maria Hübner) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation; I therefore voted against.

Насърчаване на използването на пазарите за растеж на МСП (A8-0437/2018 - Anne Sander) EN  
 

I cannot support harmonisation of the financial system. This is antithetical to the principles upon which I was elected, and to the result of the referendum in the United Kingdom; I therefore voted against.

Преговори със Съвета и Комисията относно правото на Парламента да предприема разследване: законодателно предложение (B8-0238/2019) EN  
 

This matter was not the subject of a roll-call vote. In the interests of transparency and democracy, I would like to confirm that I abstained.
I believe that, of the EU institutions, the European Parliament should (as the elected body) be stronger than the Council and Commission. I note that the Parliament wants this right of inquiry; the Council and Commission have blocked it for 25 years.
Nevertheless, to vote in favour would still be to imply that the European Parliament should have rights that should only be afforded to genuinely democratic bodies such as national parliaments. It would create a veneer of accountability without actually making any difference.
Furthermore, the report calls upon political parties to write manifestos accordingly. This should not form part of a Parliamentary vote.

Всеобхватна рамка на Европейския съюз относно ендокринните нарушители (B8-0241/2019) EN  
 

On this vote, I am torn between two conflicting principles.
On the one hand, I do recognise the potential concerns over endocrine disruptors in relation to adverse developmental and reproductive effects.
One the other hand, I oppose the principle of the European Union being the vehicle for such legislation. I believe in national parliamentary sovereignty.
I therefore abstained overall, whilst supporting appropriate amendments in favour of transparency and to provide power to Member States.

Тълкуване на член 32, параграф 5, алинея първа, второ тире от Правилника за дейността на ЕП EN  
 

. ‒ Such proposals have been repeatedly rejected by Parliament in terms of changing Parliament’s rules. I believed this to be an attack upon the independence of the mandate, which cannot be policed effectively. To achieve something similar via a substantial re-interpretation of an existing rule seems to me to be fraught with dangers. I therefore voted against.

Протокол към Споразумението между Европейската общност и Кралство Дания относно критериите и механизмите за определяне на държава, която е компетентна за разглеждане на молба за убежище, и системата Евродак (A8-0196/2019 - Ignazio Corrao) EN  
 

. ‒ As this was instigated by the Danish Government and I am not opposed to data exchanges in principle, I felt it appropriate to abstain on the report.
