The European Parliament is set to vote its position on the reform of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy at its plenary session in Strasbourg on 6 February (the Rodust report). The Parliament will vote as a co-legislator on the CFP for the first time. Ahead of this crucial vote, the Greens are organising a breakfast briefing for interested journalists to outline the key issues and possible outcomes.

Please confirm your attendance by 13.00 on Tuesday, 29 January, by responding to this email.
