It also heralded the start of the second half of the European Parliament’s legislature, taking it through to the next European elections in 2019.

Find out what each committee's aims and priorities for the current term are, in the words of their MEP chairs and vice-chairs, in our special 70 page Parliament Magazine Committee Guide.
