European Parliament President Martin Schulz decided on Tuesday to postpone the plenary vote on the EP recommendations to the negotiators of the Transatlantic trade and investment partnership (TTIP), scheduled for noon the following day. In line with Rule 175 of the EP Rules of Procedure, he decided to refer the 116 amendments tabled to the report back to the Committee on International Trade, for consideration and a vote on whether they are to be put to a plenary vote.
In a message to all MEPs, Mr Schulz cited the fact that more than 200 amendments and requests for split or separate votes had been tabled to the Lange report in plenary. He asked the committee to meet in order to consider those amendments and requests.
