EU Parliament told to use MEPs’ £1million weekly expenses to fund vital medical supplies

🇬🇧 /// BREAKING BRITANNIA NEWS /// 🇬🇧

President David Sassoli has been urged to hand over vast swathes of their expenditures appreciated by MEPs to help in the fight against COVID-19. The institution’s money coffers are untouched as MEPs execute their responsibilities from home to halt the spread of this virus. Mr Sassoli blocked politicians while working remotely this week after it appeared some Euro MPs had called for its subsistence payments to continue from asserting their daily allowance of £294.

But today the Italian has instead been told to use the money to fund ventilators and protective garments for those thousands of health care workers risking their lives to take care of coronavirus patients across the bloc.

The European Union and Reformist group that used to maintain Boris Johnson’s EU representatives, of MEPs are leading the charge.
