What happened during the last plenary session in Strasburgh? MEPs endorsed COP21, a ban on exporting EU products that could be used for torture, and discagreed on the need of further reforms in Greece and on the social and economic consequences of these efforts. They also supported the idea of free rail passes for 18yos to help them discover Europe and approved financial assistance for laid-off workers.
Following a busy plenary session in Strasbourg, MEPs work this week in their constituency or take part in parliamentary delegations. Parliament President Martin Schulz travels to London to meet among others UK Prime Minister Theresa May, while some MEPs are in Lebanon to assess the country's response to the refugee crisis.
