EP Committees elected

EP electionsMembers of the European Parliament's standing and sub committees were elected on 3 July 2014. The chairs and Vice-chairs of those Committees will be appointed on 7 July. Parliamentary Committees bring together smaller groups of MEPs that specialise in particular areas of EU policy. They do much of the preparatory work for the debates and votes carried out later in plenary. They are held in Brussels (Belgium).

The most relevant committees dealing with older people’s issues are:

  • Employment and Social Affairs Committee (EMPL)
  • Environment, Public health and Food Safety (ENVI)
  • Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE)
  • Human Rights (DROI)
  • Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON)
  • Women’s Rights and gender equality (FEMM)
  • Culture and Education (CULT)
  • Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO)
  • Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE)
  • Transport and Tourism (TRAN)
  • Regional Development (REGI)
  • Budgets (BUDG)

The complete lists are available on the website of the European Parliament at: www.europarl.europa.eu/committees/en/full-list.html 

Most plenary sessions and committees’ meetings can be followed through the EP television on Internet in all EU languages: www.europarl.europa.eu/ep-live/en/schedule
