The Council of Ministers was urged to resume talks with Parliament on a draft EU directive on maternity leave by many MEPs in a debate with Commissioner Siim Kallas on Tuesday afternoon. Parliament voted for this draft directive in 2010, to strengthen women’s rights across Europe, and its wishes should be respected, said MEPs. But the Commission recently announced plans to withdraw it, after four years’ deadlock in the Council.
