Jennifer Baker is joined by Richard More O’Ferrall, spokesperson for the Greens Group, to discuss this week’s European Parliament agenda, in the latest issue of PreviEUws.
Topics discussed include:
– Tobacco Directive: hopes for a Strasbourg vote of approval and issues with cigarette alternatives
– Common Agricultural Policy reform: why is the attempt to make a much fairer and greener legislation a ‘missed opportunity’?
– Environmental Impact Assessments: the proposal to stop shale gas projects buldozing through environmental concerns reaches a brick wall
– NSA/SWIFT scandal: the effects of Edward Snowden’s revelations on the Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme (TFTP) the EU-US Free Trade Agreement (TTIP) and the proposed Data Protection Directive
