(Brussels) A debate on the future of Europe with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, possible Brexit scenarios after the vote in the House of Commons, the priorities of the Romanian Presidency, and the Dublin reform – these are some of the items on the agenda of next week’s plenary sitting of the European Parliament in Strasbourg (14-17 January). A number of political issues will be discussed in view of the European elections in May, as well as several legislative dossiers that need to be finalised before the vote. These include proposals to improve the EU approval procedure for pesticides, and the approval of the InvestEU programme to boost employment, growth and investment. Also, MEPs will discuss and vote on rules to freeze payments to those EU Member States which do not take effective measures to tackle fraud and corruption. During the plenary, there will also be an event to commemorate 20 years since the launch of the Euro, and a debate with Mario Draghi on the eurozone economy.
