Parliament Agenda: Greens’ Priorities for the week of 30 Sept. 2013
Jennifer Baker is joined by Richard More O’Ferrall, spokesperson for the Greens Group, to discuss this week’s European Parliament agenda, in the latest issue of PreviEUws.
Topics discussed include:
– Tobacco Directive: hopes for a Strasbourg vote of approval and issues with cigarette alternatives
– Common Agricultural Policy reform: why is the attempt to make a much fairer and greener legislation a ‘missed opportunity’?
– Environmental Impact Assessments: the proposal to stop shale gas projects buldozing through environmental concerns reaches a brick wall
– NSA/SWIFT scandal: the effects of Edward Snowden’s revelations on the Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme (TFTP) the EU-US Free Trade Agreement (TTIP) and the proposed Data Protection Directive
