MEP asks to see all provisional versions of the proposed tobacco directive

| November 20, 2012

The European Commission has been asked to provide the European Parliament with all drafts of the proposed new tobacco products directive.

In written questions, the Dutch MEP, Kartika Tamara Liotard, asked, ‘Can the Commission – upholding the principle of Commission transparency – forward to Parliament the new Tobacco Directive or a draft thereof, in the form in which it existed when [health and consumer affairs] Commissioner [John] Dalli resigned?’

She asked also, ‘How many previous provisional versions of the Tobacco Directive were there, and can the Commission also, as a matter of urgency, forward these previous versions to Parliament?’
