EU funds for migration. Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos will join the Budgetary Control Committee to debate how the EU is using its migration policy funds, evaluating recent decisions and monitoring spending. (Wednesday)

RBS in TAXE II. Representatives from Royal Bank of Scotland (UK), ING Group (NL), Crédit Agricole (FR), Nordea (SW),  Santander (ES), UBS (CH), and Unicredit (IT) will meet members of the Special Committee on Tax Rulings (TAXEII) to discuss if, and how, their banks provide advice and structured financial products for tax optimisation purposes. (Monday afternoon)

Public health/glyphosate. Environment and Public Health Committee Members will state their position on whether or not the European Union should renew the marketing authorisation for the controversial herbicide glyphosate.
