Amendments to Parliament's Rules of Procedure (A8-0462/2018 - Richard Corbett)  
 

. – The UK delegation voted against the amendments to the Rules of Procedure. Whilst it is important to have transparency and ensure protection against sexual and psychological harassment, we could not support the vote in its entirety when it is calling into question the right of choice and debate within political groups and allowing larger groups to dissolve smaller groups in order for them to have their own way.

Union Customs Code: inclusion of the municipality of Campione d'Italia and the Italian waters of Lake Lugano in the customs territory of the Union (A8-0368/2018 - Jasenko Selimovic)  
 

. – I have voted against this legislative, first reading report. I do not agree with a harmonised Union Customs Code, as this is something Member States are capable of doing on their own. The introduction of the municipality of Campione d’Italia and the Italian waters of Lake Lugano is an expansion of the Single Market and another reason why I voted against this report.

Rules on direct payments and support for rural development in respect of the years 2019 and 2020 (A8-0018/2019 - Czesław Adam Siekierski)  
 

. – We opposed this legislative report because the EU institutions should not be in the position of having to rush through technical changes to address the failings of the original legislation.

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
