Action brought on 26 November 2018 — Durand and Others v Parliament

(Case T-702/18)

(2019/C 65/51)

Language of the case: English

Parties

Applicants: Pascal Durand (Paris, France) and seven other applicants (represented by: O. Brouwer and E. Raedts, lawyers)

Defendant: European Parliament

Form of order sought

The applicants claim that the Court should:

declare that the Parliament has failed to fulfil its obligations under Article 226(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and Article 198(4) of the Rules of Procedure of the European Parliament, by the failure of the Conference of Presidents to submit to the plenary of the European Parliament a proposal for the setting up of a Committee of Inquiry;

in subsidiary order, in the event that the General Court would hold that the letter of 21 September 2018 of the President of the Parliament contains an unequivocal and final position putting an end to the failure to act, annul the decision contained in the letter of 21 September 2018 to refuse to submit to the plenary of the European Parliament a proposal for the setting up of a Committee of Inquiry;

order the Parliament to pay the costs of the proceedings, including the costs of possible intervening parties.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicants submit that the Conference of Presidents of the Parliament was required to formulate and send to the plenary of the European Parliament a proposal on the setting up of a Committee of Inquiry, concerning the welfare of animals in transport, as requested by 223 Members of the European Parliament, pursuant to Article 198(4) of the Rules of Procedure of the European Parliament and in accordance with Article 226 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. A decision refusing to do so would breach these same articles.
