star this property answer text The UK’s position is well known among other Member States; we are in favour of a single seat. The current arrangements are expensive, impractical and indefensible on environmental grounds. A move to a single seat would require Treaty change and the common accord of all Member States. We welcome the support from within the European Parliament for the move to a single seat. Pressure from Members of the European Parliament themselves to make this change should help push this issue up the political agenda throughout the European Union. more like this

star this property answer text The EU Court of Auditors estimates that a move to a “single seat” for the European Parliament would save €113 million a year, while the European Parliament’s own “Single Seat” campaign estimates the saving at about €180 million a year, and a reduction of the EP’s carbon footprint by 40%. The UK welcomes the support from within the European Parliament for the move to a single seat and hopes that Members of the European Parliament push this issue up the political agenda.
