CARTHY
(none) (+) . – I voted against the 2020 Budget because it continues to prioritise corporate interests and militarization at the expense of socially beneficial programmes.
Of particular concern, is that for the second year the EU budget has allocated 250 million EUR to the European Defence Industrial Defence Programme (EDIDP). This programme is a subsidy to the arms industry and contradicts EU treaties as it is prohibited to charge any spending with 'military or defence implications' to the EU budget (Article 41 TEU). Furthermore, the EDIDP is a precursor to the 13 billion EUR European Defence Fund planned for 2021.

KELLY
(none) (+) . ‒ I voted in favour of this report, regarding the proposal to extend the dates of application of two Brexit contingency Regulations: Regulation (EU) 2019/501 on road traffic and Regulation (EU) 2019/502 on air traffic. This will be important in order to achieve the intended purpose of the Regulations, and to give affected stakeholders more time to adjust to the new Brexit deadline.
