    Corporate tax policies

    It is imperative that tax fairness and transparency is placed at the centre of any taxation legislation and this extends to ensuring that a more equitable corporate tax system is implemented. However, all matters relating to the setting of tax rates must remain a matter of national competency and the European Parliament has no right to attempt to attack sovereignty by introducing provisions which fundamentally undermine taxation sovereignty.

    Border and Coastguard Package

    The development of a European Border and Coast Guard System is just another measure to keep refugees from reaching EU borders. What we should invest in is a European search and rescue action. I am afraid a European Coast Guard System will only result in more power to the smugglers and even more dangerous situations for refugees, and especially female refugees.
