Question time

Description

This “Question Time” gives MEPs the possibility to question the Commission on specific topical issues decided upon by the Conference of Presidents. Each MEP has one minute to ask their question, followed by an answer of up to two minutes and a possible follow-up question, no longer than 30 seconds, and a second answer by the Commissioner of up to two minutes.

Question Time with the Commission may be held at each part-session for a duration of up to 90 minutes on one or more specific horizontal themes: the topics/questions are sent to the EC the week before the plenary session.
