soeben den Text hier erhalten:
The McCarthy report HAS been withdrawn! (forwarded mail at bottom)
I've confirmed this with a phone call to the European Parliament
Office in Ireland. They said that this happens when a directive
is very contraversial or when too many amendments are proposed.
The directive will go back to the committee stage for some more
work, and a new version will go to the plenary on either 22nd of
September, or early October. October is more likely.
On the phone, she said that it is *definitely* withdrawn. This
situation can be reversed but it's highly unlikely.
we kick ass. ...and have more work to do :)
