European Voice (25 October and 31 October) has highlighted the consistent and now overwhelming demand by MEPs to have a single seat for the European Parliament, especially against the current economic backdrop. The vote on 23 October on the Parliament’s own 2013 budget – when 75% of MEPs backed a single seat – means the European Council must address this issue. We have set a deadline of June 2013 for the Council to join us in elaborating a practical roadmap for reform.
