3d man finalizing European Union flag puzzle
On Monday 26 April, an extraordinary Committee meeting was organised in order to vote on IMCO's recommendation for the EP second reading position (single vote) of the MFF Single Market Programme (Rapporteur Mr Brando Benifei – S&D).

The MFF Single Market Programme is the new 4.2 billion programme to strengthen the Internal Market, to ensure support for SMEs, promote consumer protection, support actions related to animals, plants, food and feed, as well as statistics. The recommendation was adopted with 40 votes in favour,1 against and 3 abstentions, thus backing the first reading position of the Council as announced in Plenary at the opening of the session on 26 April, thereby closing the ordinary legislative procedure.

In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of epidemic and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.

The current precautionary measures adopted by the European Parliament to contain the spread of COVID-19 do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the institution's legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions are maintained.

The meetings will be with remote participation for Members (being able to view and listen to proceedings, ask for the floor and intervene in the meeting). Other participants are invited to follow the meeting through webstreaming.

Following these decisions, the next remote IMCO Committee Meeting will take place on Wednesday, 26 May from 9.30-12.30 (tbc), from 13.45-16.15 and from 16.45-18.45 and Thursday, 27 May 09.30-12.30.
