MEPs want to reduce size of European Parliament

September 12, 2017

MEPs want to reduce the size of the European Parliament once Britain leaves the EU. Last night in Strasbourg they debated the future composition of the parliament post-Brexit. The UK currently has seventy three (73) MEPs. MEPs have suggested re-distributing twenty two of those seats while keeping the remaining fifty one (51) for possible EU enlargement or potential pan-European lists. There’s a possibility that Ireland could gain up to two MEP seats if some of the British seats were re-distributed. The Sinn Fein MEP Liadh Ni Riada says that would be a good thing for Ireland.

Out words: additional seats
