Committee on the Environment Public Health and Food Safety Evolution


During the 1990s it was unfavourably known as the Cinderella committee by MEPs, due to its low importance. However since then, under the chairmanship of Ken Collins, it has increased in powers. The co-decision procedure for legislation, which grants more powers to the Parliament, has been extended to more policy areas. Notably, the areas covered by this committee were the main recipients of these new powers. Also due to the rising importance of its issues (e.g. in regards to global warming), it has become one of the most important committees in Parliament. As well as becoming a major forum with the Parliament, the open sessions are usually well frequented by both business lobbyists and representatives from environmental NGOs.[2]
