Parliament’s political group leaders will react to the EU-UK reform deal reached at the EU summit and comment on the changes conceded by EU leaders to the UK as well as their consequences for the European Union as a whole. The debate with Council President Donald Tusk and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will start at 3.10pm.
Member states’ responses to the ongoing refugee crisis will also be addressed by MEPs during the debate on the outcome of the 18-19 February European Council meeting.
Note to editors
The reforms sought by the UK PM ahead of the UK’s IN/OUT EU membership referendum on 23 June were conceded in a political agreement among member states on 19 February. If the UK chooses to remain part of the EU, some of the reforms will have to be scrutinized and enacted into EU law by the Council and Parliament on an equal footing, as co-legislators.
