Brussels The European Parliament wants to cut data flows to Great Britain. MPs urge the EU Commission not to extend the exemption for data sharing. There are indications that a majority in Parliament will support this call.
A transition period will apply until the middle of the year, during which European companies can also save data on UK servers. To keep this possible, the EU Commission wants to state that data is stored as securely in Britain as it is within the EU.
However, in the opinion of parliamentarians, this is not the case. The leftist, liberal, social democratic and green parliamentary groups agreed in the Justice Commission in a very critical position on the Commission’s project and are optimistic that colleagues from other parties will also join. “The proposed decision does not comply with European Union law,” the document says.
