Theresa May said: “The Government will, therefore, include in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill a requirement to vote on whether to hold a second referendum,” External link

Theresa May added: “The new Brexit deal will also place a legal duty on the Government to seek as close to frictionless trade with the EU in goods as possible, subject to being outside the Single Market and ending freedom of movement. In order to deliver this, the UK will maintain common rules with the EU for goods and agri-food products that are relevant to checks at the border. This will be particularly important for our manufacturing firms and trade unions, protecting thousands of jobs that depend on just-in-time supply chains,” External link

Keir Starmer said (about Shadow Brexit): "The Prime Minister needs to, today, accept that what she announced yesterday isn't going to work and pull the vote. MPs will get a binding vote on whether to force a second referendum - but only if they back the rest of the deal (below). MPs will get a vote on whether to have a temporary customs union, lasting until 2022, or not have a customs union. This plan was the compromise put to, but ultimately rejected by, Labour in six weeks of talks. There will be a legal obligation for to end by December 2020. A 'legal duty' to ensure 'as close to frictionless trade' in goods as possible with the EU - meaning maintaining some common rules with the EU for goods and agri-food products. Northern Ireland would be prohibited from splitting off from the UK's customs territory - and the Assembly and Executive would have to give consent on any regulations added to the backstop clause. MPs will be able to vote on objectives for the future relationship with the EU. A new workers' rights Bill to ensure standards are kept as good as, or better than, those in the EU. An Office of Environmental Protection to ensure environmental standards are kept. A 'legal duty' will force the UK to secure changes to the political declaration, part of the Brexit deal, to ensure these new promises endure " External link

Corina Popescu said: "We are experiencing a complicated period worldwide. Climate change, which we all feel, is seen as one of the greatest global threats today and the energy sector is one of the main polluters, being one of the major sources of gas greenhouse effect, which are the determining factors of climate change. Therefore, at the level of the European Union, the spearhead in tackling the causes of climate change, decisions have been made and decisions are taken on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, with a decisive impact on the European and, obviously, Romanian energy sector. Additionally, internally, we are going through a difficult period of time for many companies in the energy field. Emergency Ordinance 114/2018, recently amended by another one, OUG 19/2019, and the avalanche of related secondary regulations, have disturbed the energy market players. This is why I believe they need to be very well represented in front of the European and Romanian authorities, to promote their interests and needs. Together, more active and more determined, we are making things happen so as to bring about changes in the Romanian energy sector and not only," External link

Arturo Baglivo conclude: “L’Europa – prosegue – avrebbe finanziato 2milioni e 400 mila euro per la sua attuazione. Ma nel 2020 perderemo questi soldi. L’iniziativa era partita nel 2008, quando la Commissione europea incentivò i comuni a cooperare per combattere il cambiamento climatico. Nacque così il Patto dei sindaci: il maggior movimento mondiale basato su azioni locali per il clima e l’energia con oltre 7500 città firmatarie in 6 continenti. Attraverso la redazione di un Piano d’azione per l’energia sostenibile (Paes), i comuni aderenti si impegnavano, entro il 2020, a ridurre le emissioni di gas serra almeno del 20% e di aumentare l’impiego di energie rinnovabili almeno del 20%. Dal 2015 il Patto dei sindaci è entrato in una seconda fase portando l’obiettivo di riduzione delle emissioni ad almeno il 40% entro il 2030. Il Piano prevedeva che le città e i piccoli comuni potessero ricevere fondi per progettare azioni in vari settori, per esempio infrastrutture urbane (teleriscaldamento, reti elettriche intelligenti), politiche per il trasporto pubblico e privato, coinvolgimento dei cittadini attraverso comportamenti consapevoli nella gestione dell’energia. Lecce aveva aderito con la presentazione di un progetto redatto da tecnici decisi dalla provincia guidata allora da Gabellone, in concorrenza con l’ordine dei geometri, degli architetti e degli ingegneri di Lecce che da liberi professionisti avrebbero dovuto avere il naturale compito di redigere i Paes. Il progetto venne approvato dall’Unione Europea che finanziò, come dicevamo, 2milioni e 400mila euro per la sua attuazione ma da allora questi fondi non sono mai stati presi né utilizzati. Ci domandiamo: i 96 mila euro dei cittadini sono serviti per redigere un Paes che è rimasto in un cassetto? Questa è la storia della politica amministrativa leccese degli ultimi venti anni – (\*) – La stessa storia accaduta con il Pug targato Perrone (1,5 milioni di euro) e con il Piano coste di Salvemini se non dovesse andare oltre” External link

It is my priority, as an environmental minister and a European citizen, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. How can we do that? We need to consider reducing energy consumption while reducing the use of certain products with a huge carbon footprint. Indirectly, citizens' choices are important to developing a circular economy and new business models that can lead to the creation of new jobs and economic growth. Today's debates have evidenced that we have to include not only the citizen in this process, but to extend it to the whole society: decision-makers and stakeholders," External link

Piers Morgan said: “The way that you’re categorising 17.4 million people essentially as a bunch of extremists who committed suicide with the country’s economy isn’t that a little insulting to all those people who voted in a democratic referendum after hearing the debate for months and months on end, cast their vote and now expect the government, as it promised, to enact the result of the referendum?” External link

Vytenis Andriukaitis said: “In 2018, there were more than 12,000 cases of measles leading to 35 deaths in the EU. This is unacceptable given that an effective vaccine exists since the 1960s. Only four EU Member States have achieved the necessary target of at least 95% of the population having received two doses of vaccines to get herd immunity. We need to work together to reach this target and I will redouble my efforts to make sure that vaccination remains a fundamental element of primary health care and a component of every health care package because it saves lives. The next stop for awareness raising and our common work together is a Global Summit on Vaccination co-organized by the European Commission and WHO, that will take place in Brussels, September 12” External link

Grațiela Leocadia Gavrilescu detto: "Sono molto contenta del fatto che oggi, a Bucarest, in Romania, nella capitale di tutti i romeni, si sta svolgendo il Consiglio ambientale informale. È l'evento più importante in cui saranno presenti tutti i rappresentanti, i ministri dell'Ambiente dell'Unione europea. Oggi discuteremo argomenti di interesse europeo, internazionale e nazionale, in particolare argomenti sui cambiamenti climatici e questioni ambientali. Nella prima parte della sessione odierna affronteremo un tema estremamente importante: soluzioni innovative e il ruolo dei cittadini nella riduzione delle emissioni di carbonio. Sono convinta che tutti i ministri degli Stati membri affronteranno oggi correttamente la questione e che le misure che dobbiamo trovare insieme saranno effettivamente quelle che ridurranno gli effetti dei gas serra" External link

Ivan Stomeo spiega: «Le nuove direttive sull’economia circolare aiuteranno i Comuni perché grazie al principio della responsabilità estesa dei produttori si va nella direzione di ridurre l’uso e la produzione di imballaggi – (\*) – Per questo è necessario che governo e Parlamento recepiscano quanto prima le direttive 851 sui rifiuti e 852 sugli imballaggi. Come Anci stiamo cercando di anticiparne, per quanto possibile, alcuni contenuti nel prossimo accordo quadro con il Conai, ma l’intervento legislativo resta fondamentale» External link
