Petition STOP THE STRASBOURG CIRCUS
We the undersigned believe that the €200 million spent every year moving the European Parliament between Brussels and Strasbourg is a waste of taxpayers’ money. We are further concerned that the travelling circus generates 20,000 tonnes of CO₂ at a time when all countries are supposed to be cutting their levels of pollution. We want the British Government to support the ‘One Seat Campaign’ and lobby for the end of the Strasbourg Circus.
We request that the Prime Minister submits a proposal in support of the ‘One Seat Campaign’ to the European Council demanding a change in European law so that the European Parliament need only meet in one place.
