Las eurodiputadas del PP Pilar Ayuso y Esther Herranz, elegidas como integrantes de la nueva comisión del Parlamento Europeo sobre pesticidas

, 08.02.2018 - 12:37

Las eurodiputadas del PP Pilar Ayuso y Esther Herranz han sido elegidas como integrantes de la nueva comisión que el Parlamento Europeo ha decidido crear sobre la gestión de los pesticidas en la UE.

Esta comisión temporal abordará aspectos como los procedimientos de aprobación de pesticidas en la UE; los posibles defectos en la evaluación de estas sustancias; o el papel de la Comisión Europea en la renovación de la licencia para el uso del glifosato, que fue recientemente motivo de intensas discusiones en las instituciones europeas.

Esta comisión trabajará durante 9 meses, celebrará su primera reunión en marzo y estará compuesta por un total de treinta eurodiputados procedentes de todos los grupos de la Eurocámara, que elaborarán al final de su mandato un informe con conclusiones y recomendaciones sobre el uso de los pesticidas a nivel comunitario.

La eurodiputada francesa Angelique Delahaye ha sido elegida como coordinadora del Grupo PPE para esta comisión.
