5th November to 9th November

Conservative MEPs are participating in committee meetings and preparing for next week's European Parliament session. 

On MONDAY the International Trade Committee is expected to propose the parliament approves a trade deal between the EU and Japan, the largest trade deal the EU has signed and one which is likely to form the basis of a future UK-Japan agreement. Conservative MEP Syed Kamall (London) has helped steer the report through parliament. 

The first EU-wide regulations covering the crowdfunding sector, shaped by Conservative delegation leader Ashley Fox (South West and Gibraltar), are set to be approved by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on MONDAY. The new rules should increase cross border activity and open up new sources of finance for small businesses.

On FRIDAY Conservative Defence and Security spokesman Geoffrey Van Order MEP (Eastern England) will address a conference in Vienna examining the EU's role in securing Europe.
