WRITTEN EXPLANATION OF VOTE (B8-0076/2019)
Objection pursuant to Rule 106: genetically modified cotton GHB614 × LLCotton25 × MON 15985

GM cotton GHB614 x LLCotton25 x MON 15985 is tolerant to glyphosate, glufosinate and produces two insecticidal proteins. Concerns have also been raised that the toxicological studies submitted by the applicant and assessed by EFSA are insufficient. I voted in favour of this objection, especially because of the need for further studies to fully examine the consequences of this GM cotton.
