  • Trunks
    Article: Dec 12, 2011

    Along with fellow European Parliament Vice-President Isabelle Durant, Diana has initiated a campaign in the European Parliament to show MEPs that they can make a difference when it comes to reducing the effect of what has been termed the European Parliament's 'travelling circus'.

    Once a month the entire Parliament ups sticks and heads from its normal home inBrusselsto meet inStrasbourg, a distance of 436kms. All MEPs offices have a trunk (used to transport papers and other materials) which is collected on Friday, driven toStrasbourgand then returned toBrusselsonce the session is over. Currently eight vans travel toStrasbourgeach month and each van carries 375 trunks. If MEPs however leave their trunks standing up it will not be taken by the movers on the trip toStrasbourg; a fact that is not widely known. So now Diana Wallis and Isabelle Durant have launched a campaign under the heading 'Stand up your trunk, don't take it toStrasbourg'.

    Diana has, along with her fellow Euro MPs, sent a strong signal of support to the European Commission to put in place a cross border alert system to stop so-called 'dodgy doctors' from moving from country to country to continue malpractice.

  • Honey bee
    Article: Nov 15, 2011

    Diana today voted in favour of a co-ordinated EU strategy to secure a healthy honeybee population and tackle challenges in the beekeeping sector.

    Recent increases in bee mortality and a declining number of beekeepers across Europe could threaten food production and security, environmental sustainability and biodiversity if left unchecked. An estimated 84% of plant species and 76% of food production in Europe are dependent on pollination by bees.
