WRITTEN EXPLANATION OF VOTE (A8-0462/2018)
Amendments to Parliament's Rules of Procedure

I supported amendments which sought to:
1. Remove limitations upon the numbers of Parliamentary Questions which could be asked by MEPs
2. Ensure fair distribution of speaking time and time for major interpellations amongst Parliamentary Groups
3. Delete the possibility of a large political group forcing secret ballots upon the Parliament
4. Require the Commission to respond faster to questions raised by MEPs
I wished to support amendments regarding sexual harassment, which were unfortunately not voted on as a previous amendment (which I could not accept) had been carried.
I opposed amendments seeking to regulate political affinity within Parliamentary groups (which would be fundamentally undemocratic), and to make it harder for political groups and groups of MEPs to force debates upon important issues.
Whilst I had been considering an abstention on the final vote, ultimately some of the amendments which carried made it impossible for me to do so; accordingly, I voted against.
