Irish Ministers to present Presidency priorities to European Parliament Committees

18.01.2013, 22:00 GMT


20 Ministers will give 27 presentations to MEPs over 3 days in Brussels

Ministers will this week present to Members of the European Parliament on how they will make progress on stability, growth and jobs during the Irish Presidency. These presentations will provide an opportunity for the Ministers to engage in a dialogue with the Committees and the Members of the European Parliament on the key issues for the EU in the next six months.

Following the presentation of the Irish Presidency’s priorities by Irish Prime Minister, an Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, at the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg, on 22 January Ministers will address the Committees of the European Parliament.

The Presidency’s relationship with the European Parliament is key to successfully delivering on the EU legislative agenda.
