MEPs debate the outcome of the last European Council, which approved guidelines for the negotiations with the UK on the terms of its withdrawal from the EU, with European Council President Donald Tusk and the Commission, on Wednesday morning. The European Parliament had already adopted its key principles and conditions for the UK's withdrawal agreement on 5 April. In their resolution, MEPs gave priority to securing equal and fair treatment for EU citizens living in the UK and British citizens living in the EU. Any agreement at the end of UK-EU negotiations will need to win the approval of the European Parliament.

He succeeded Ban Ki-moon as UN Secretary-General on 1 January 2017.

New rules enabling EU citizens with subscriptions for online films and TV series to access this content while temporarily in another EU country, were debated today and will be voted on Thursday. EU citizens visiting another EU country are often prevented from accessing online content services, such as films, TV series, music, games, or sporting events, for which they have paid subscriptions for in their home country. The new rules, informally agreed by Parliament and Council negotiators in February 2017, will remove these restrictions so that EU citizens can also watch, listen or play when abroad in another EU country for holidays, studies or business.
