WRITTEN EXPLANATION OF VOTE (A8-0474/2018)
Annual report on competition policy

Let me start by saying that I welcome Commissioner Vestager’s work and concerns raised regarding the Siemens-Alstom merger. She has and is facing very strong political pressure but as always confirms she stands firm.
As I raised in the past, I do feel that potential negative consequences on the high-speed rolling stock and signalling systems could arise if this merger was to be authorised.
Regarding data utilisation and, let me say, misuse by big tech firms, I am very proud that many of my amendments are included in the final compromises.
Concretely the text says that: ‘users are often not aware of the extent to which their data is being used and passed on to third parties for marketing or commercial purposes; calls on the Commission, in line with Article 5(3) of the ePrivacy Directive to make sure that digital companies exploit personal data only after that users gave their explicit consent’.
This report calls on the Commission to organise a hearing with tech companies, inviting the CEOs of Google, Facebook to discuss how consumers’ personal data is harvested.
Let me conclude with the Google antitrust cases. This report invites the Commission to consider the possibility of setting deadlines for antitrust cases, as it does in merger cases.
