MEPs will have the opportunity to ask questions on the international role of the euro, systemic risks for the euro area and on the ruling of Germany’s Constitutional Court on mass bond-buying (Monday).
EU response to economic crisis. Changes to EU rules on banks’ capital requirements to facilitate banks’ ability to support households and businesses in the EU, will be debated and voted upon by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (Monday: vote, Tuesday: results).
EU-UK negotiations. Parliament’s draft recommendations on the ongoing EU-UK negotiations are set to be approved by the Foreign Affairs and International Trade committees, which will also include input from 17 other committees, each in its own remit (Friday).
Reform of road transport sector. The Transport and Tourism Committee will vote on a deal reached with EU ministers on new rules to better tackle illegal practices in the road transport sector, define for which transport operations posting of workers rules apply and amend drivers’ rest times (Monday).A New Consumer Agenda. Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders will discuss with the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee the future Consumer Agenda and the Commission Work Programme for 2020, which has been adjusted following the COVID-19 outbreak. Contact tracing apps, as well as current issues faced by the tourism sector, are also likely to be raised by MEPs (Monday).Classifying SARS-CoV-2.
