EU parliament round-up
The European parliament assembled in Strasbourg this week for its first plenary session after the summer break. In a quiet week for environmental policy, the sole noteworthy event was the approval without amendment of a government position on a recast of EU fertiliser laws (EED 15/04/03). The new legislation will now enter force relatively quickly. The most controversial issue surrounding fertilisers - maximum cadmium content - is being treated separately; European Commission proposals are imminent (EED 04/08/03). A debate on trans-European networks was postponed until the next plenary session later this month. See European parliament texts adopted.
