Politics: European Parliament postpones vote and debate on TTIP

On 9 June 2015, the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz postponed vote on TTIP, the reason being more than 200 proposed amendments to the material. The EP's plenary debate on TTIP planned for 10 June was cancelled. The resolution on TTIP was sent back to the International Trade Committe (INTA) that will discuss the issue at its session on 15 and 16 June. Click here to read more in Czech.
