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)

18-04-2019

. – Denmark is a member of Eurojust but enjoys an opt-out from the Justice and Home Affairs pillar under Protocol 22 to the Treaties. Because of this, when the new Eurojust Regulation 2018/1727 enters into force on 12 December 2019, the country will be considered as a third country with respect to Eurojust.
The Danish authorities have expressed the wish to continue to take part in Eurojust, but waiting for the new Regulation to come into force before making a new agreement could risk an ‘operational gap’. This report endorses an agreement made under the current legal framework that will avoid this. I therefore voted in favour.

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

18-04-2019

. – This file is an update on the existing regulation 883/2004, which deals with the coordination of social security systems across the EU. However, when workers or individuals move between Member States there are a complicated series of effects on social security systems which this regulation tries to deal with. For example, when someone is injured on holiday and gets medical treatment in another Member State, or when they move between Member States for work, paying insurance in several countries, and then become unemployed.
The outcome at Committee level was quite progressive, including better rules to protect workers at all levels. In general, respect has been maintained for the subsidiarity principle and the establishment of, and rules around, individual social security systems remain the competence of individual Member States, and some loopholes around social fraud have been closed.
Unfortunately negotiations with the Council and Commission reached an impasse. Rather than leaving things dangling, with this vote the Parliament reconfirmed its support for the text adopted in Plenary last November. I voted in favour.

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

18-04-2019

. – I voted in favour of this report. Sinn Féin supported the Parliament’s position in the November 2018 vote and welcomes the agreed position between Parliament and Council after negotiations. Ambitious CO2 emissions reduction targets of new heavy-duty vehicles will be set for 2025 and for 2030, and a just transition towards zero-emission mobility is to be ensured, taking into account the social effects of the transition throughout the whole automotive value chain.
