Committee asked to reconsider passenger data plan (European Voice, link):
The Civil Liberties Committee of the European Parliament (LIBE) opposed the idea of extending the EU-PNR proposal to also cover tracking passengers' movements inside the EU (recording all travel between Member States). This extension of the proposals scope was initiated by the UK government and other governments in the Justice and Home Affairs Council. The original proposal from the European Commission concerned only monitoring air travel from outside the EU (those coming into the EU from third countries on visas or visa-free countries). The Committee's report was due to be discussed at the Strasbourg plenary session this week but the Conference of Presidents (the party leaders in the EP) stepped in and sent it back to the Committee.
