While T&E welcomes any attempt to make member states more accountable and procedures more transparent, we believe the reform is not going far enough.
Concretely we demand that:
- the transparency requirements must be significantly scaled up;
- the reform must apply to comitology in its entirety;
- trade-offs at ministerial level must be avoided;
- and the European Parliament be put on equal footing if new responsibilities are created for the Council.
