Week ahead

23rd May - 27th May

A full session of the European Parliament on Wednesday and Thursday in Brussels takes place alongside a busy week of committee meetings.

On MONDAY the home affairs committee is staging a discussion with European Counter Terrorism Centre chief Manuel Navarette Paniagua. Conservative Home Affairs spokesman Timothy Kirkhope (Yorkshire and Humber) will emphasise the need to make progress on extending the EU's Criminal Records Information System.

Vicky Ford MEP (Eastern England) chairs a meeting of the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee on TUESDAY at which more than 800 amendments to reforms to European gun laws are being debated. Mrs Ford is piloting the legislation through the European Parliament.

On WEDNESDAY the European Commission publishes proposals to extend the EU Digital Single Market (DSM), including how to address geoblocking, the practice of  preventing subscribers to services such as Sky and Netflix from watching programmes abroad. Meanwhile, the parliament is discussing progress made on implementing the DSM. Conservative MEP Vicky Ford chairs the European  Conservatives and Reformists Group's DSM policy group.

On THURSDAY the parliament is expected to approve a report by Conservative MEP Dan Dalton (West Midlands) highlighting barriers to trade within the EU. These range from obstacles to British hairdressers working in Germany to rules making it difficult to sell kit cars in Belgium.
