Long awaited MEPs decision was taken last Thursday (24 March). Generally speaking, MEPs backed the draft directive on consumers rights but with certain amendments. However, MEPs decided to postpone their final decision with a view to reaching and agreement with the Council. Anyway the Parliament endorsed IMCO's amendments, as well as a number of new compromise amendments supported by all political groups, to provide a mandate for negotiations with the Council on a new directive. So we are now waiting whether/how MEPs reach an agreement with the Member States.
