Text of Motion passed by NL Parliament to block A-item

--> [ Story | JURI Restart | Previous Dutch Motion | Council reversal | Patent News ]

The Parliament,

Having heard the deliberations,

Considering the uniqueness of the European Parliament wanting to invoke article 55 of the Rules of Procedure of the European Parliament,

Considering that not waiting for the answer of the Commission to the request of the European Parliament to restart the procedure concerning the software patents could lead to a serious clash of the European Institutions,

Considering that in order to avoid a possible clash of the Institutions it would be good to wait for the decision of the Commission concerning the restart of the procedure,

Calls upon the government to devote itself to ensuring that the subject of software patents will not be put on the agenda as an A-Item before the Commission has answered the request of the European Parliament to restart this dossier.

And proceeds to the order of the day.
