(Source: European Parliament)
Answer given by Ms Vălean
on behalf of the European Commission
The Commission strives for a fully functioning Single Market, high social standards and the well-being of drivers and emission reductions in road transport in line with the Green Deal objectives. The two studies to which the Honourable Member refers confirm that the provisions concerned are likely to result in negative impacts on the environment. With their publication on 19 February 2021, the Commission has shared the findings of the studies with the Member States and the European Parliament inviting them to a further dialogue on this issue.
