Migration, Agricultural market crisis and Migration flows in the Mediterranean - this week in the European Parliament

MEPs return to Brussels on 14th September for a mixed week of Committee meetings and plenary on Wednesday 16th September. The plenary is when Members of the European Parliament from all political groups and from all countries meet in the parliamentary chamber to discuss and vote on legislation.

 
 .

Highlights

Plenary

Migration.  Both urgent and permanent measures to deal with the migration and refugees crisis will be debated with Council and Commission. (Wednesday)

Agricultural markets crisis.  Members will look at the current crisis on agricultural markets, especially in the dairy and meat sectors, with Commissioner Phil Hogan. Falling prices have hit farmers in many member states, exacerbating the effects of the prolonged Russian embargo on food imports from the EU. (Wednesday)

Committees

Migration flows in the Mediterranean.  Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Elmar Brok, Civil Liberties Committee Chair Claude Moraes and Human Rights Subcommittee Elena Valenciano will host a public hearing on "Respecting human rights in the context of migration flows in the Mediterranean". (Tuesday)
