MEPs are refusing to let proposed EU measures to reduce air transport's contribution to climate change be watered down. A vote last month keeps MEPs and ministers on a collision course over the terms by which aviation will enter the EU ETS.
The MEP responsible for coordinating responses to the Commission’s Euro VI emissions standards for heavy vehicles says the standards should be stricter and come into force 18 months earlier than Brussels envisages.
The Commission wants people's views on how to improve consumer information in advertisements for new cars. The consultation comes after Brussels admitted the 1999 directive requiring fuel consumption and CO2 labelling of all new cars is 'not working as well as it could'. One of the options proposed is to make the rules on advertising information more strict.
