Other parliamentary activities 

Written explanations of vote 
Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Eurojust-Denmark Agreement on judicial cooperation in criminal matters (A8-0192/2019 - Claude Moraes)  
 

I voted in favour of the conclusion by Eurojust of the Agreement on Criminal Justice Cooperation between Eurojust and the Kingdom of Denmark. Though the role of the European Parliament in this matter is limited to consultation, this document is very important for justice and home affairs policy, as it provides for a wider participation of the Representative to Eurojust in meetings of the College of Eurojust than that provided for liaison magistrates of third States. For that reason, I supported the report.

Coordination of social security systems (A8-0386/2018 - Guillaume Balas)  
 

I voted in favour of this important report that was supposed to harmonise social security rules across the EU Member States. Unfortunately the text was blocked in the plenary vote, although it provided unemployment benefits, long-term care and family benefits, as well as better rules for posting and applicable legislation. These new rules would have been beneficial for millions of mobile European workers, by guaranteeing more social security for workers moving from one EU country to another. Along with other Socialists and Democrats I will continue battle to defend the rights of mobile workers.

CO2 emission performance standards for new heavy-duty vehicles (A8-0354/2018 - Bas Eickhout)  
 

I supported with my vote this report setting CO2 emission performance standards for new heavy-duty vehicles. This draft Regulation is part of the third ‘Europe on the Move’ package and its objective is to make European mobility safer and more accessible, European industry more competitive, European jobs more secure, and to put the sector firmly on the path towards zero emissions by mid-century and fully in line with the Paris Agreement. In order to ensure the smooth transition towards zero-emission mobility and to provide incentives for the development and deployment on the Union market of zero and low-emission heavy-duty vehicles, the Regulation should set a reference value for the proportion of zero and low-emission vehicles in all manufacturers’ fleets by 2025 and 2030. I consider it ambitious enough for the achievement of the ‘Europe on the Move’ package.

Written questions 
Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III
