18th March to 22nd March

On THURSDAY the European Parliament's Home Affairs committee will vote on a report by Conservative MEP Daniel Dalton (West Midlands) which tackles the posting of terrorist content online.

Just a week after the Christchurch shooting, the new legislation would back up the current voluntary code and require major platforms to remove terrorist content within a hour if instructed by national authorities, with punitive fines for repeat offenders.

Safeguards would be put in place to protect freedom of speech.

On TUESDAY Emma McClarkin MEP (East Midlands) stages an event looking at adoption in the digital age, while Rupert Matthews MEP (East Midlands) and John Procter MEP (Yorkshire and the Humber) host a discussion on improving life saving heart treatment for children. 

Throughout the week MEPs are preparing for next week's parliamentary sitting in Strasbourg at which there will be votes on new online copyright rules and a plan to end the practice of changing the clocks twice a year.
