Ian Hudghton (Greens/EFA) − The Commission's original proposal for a consumer rights directive was an unwelcome, unnecessary attempt to enforce maximum harmonisation for no apparent reason other that to satisfy those who believe that cultural and legal diversity runs counter to the EU principles. The proposal would have led to a reduction in consumer rights in various European countries and there was no evidence it would have benefitted the market. The compromise package agreed in the IMCO committee is far from perfect but marks a significant improvement and a base upon which we can build in negotiations with the other institutions.
