I call on the European Parliament to keep the annual relocation from Brussels (Belgium) to Strasbourg (France) and back. Apart from CO2 emissions, the European taxpayer would save € 200 million.


The European Parliament have a seat in Strasbourg and one in Brussels. The main location in Strasbourg is fully equipped but is rarely used every year. The taxpayer alone costs about 200 million euros per year for the transport of man and material. The very fact that the European Parliament is mainly based in Brussels makes the point of the headquarters in Strasbourg incomprehensible!
