25/01/2023 | 19:12:52 Thank you. Dear colleagues, Can I start by adding my voice of thanks and gratitude to the rapporteurs for the work that they have done. If you'll forgive me for signalling out one in particular, my Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe colleague Ms Petra STIENEN, who I know from my time as serving on the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination with her from 2016 to 2020, has been an extremely strong voice on this important issue. The eradication of gender-based violence is a key... 24/01/2023 | 19:00:10 Madam Vice President, Distinguished Colleagues, Firstly, can I thank Ms Fiona O'LOUGHLIN for her work as rapporteur on this report and compliment her on producing such a comprehensive report which has received such strong support across all political groupings.

I'm very happy to speak in favour of this very timely and important report on improving the protection of whistle-blowers. Whistle-blowers play an essential role in any open and transparent democracy. Whistle-blowing is acknowledged as one of the most effective ways to stop wrongdoing. Wrongdoing which ultimately stems from greed, a sense of entitlement and a mentality of superiority and belief that self-interest trumps all else. Both these behaviours and attitudes... 26/06/2019 | 11:29:50 Mental health historically has been covered in a shroud of darkness because of the stigma attached to it. People who suffered from mental health have been marginalised, shunned and demonised throughout history. Sent away, locked up in institutions, never to see the light of day. Families do not dare to speak due to the huge source of embarrassment. While undoubtedly over the last decade or so much better awareness of the challenges of mental health and how it can affect anyone of us at...
