Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals

We will continue our consideration of COM (2015) 186, which is the proposal for a Council decision on the position to be adopted, on behalf of the European Union, in the EEA joint committee concerning an amendment to Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement (Batteries and Accumulators). It is proposed that this proposal does not warrant further scrutiny. Is that agreed? Agreed.

On the "green card" for food waste, it is proposed that the committee agrees to lend its support to a draft House of Lords proposal to be submitted to the European Commission regarding food waste policy. Is that agreed? Agreed.

I propose that we now go into private session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 6.10 p.m. and adjourned at 6.15 p.m. until 2.20 p.m. on Tuesday, 14 July 2015.
