Jennifer Baker is joined by James Holtum, spokesperson for the ECR Group, to discuss the proposal for an EU-wide Passenger Name Record (PNR).
The European Parliament has pledged to work towards the finalisation of the EU PNR directive by the end of 2015. On Thursday 26 February, ECR Group MEP Timothy Kirkhope will present a revised draft report on the EU Passenger Name Record to the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee. Holtum argues that it is necessary to make progress on the Data Protection Package, so that the new PNR proposal could go hand-in-hand with the Data Protection regulation.
