26/04/2022 | 16:58:34 Thank you very much, President.  First of all, I should like to pay tribute to this initiative from our rapporteur, Ms Reina de BRUIJN-WEZEMAN. In this report, she sets out and clearly details not only the over-institutionalisation of people with disabilities but also the way in which this is in contradiction with the conventions, both of the United Nations and the Council of Europe. In the draft bill under consideration in my own country, on the person and the family, we have taken a dual... 15/03/2022 | 17:17:09 Good afternoon.

Before I go into my thoughts on the matter, let me give you some figures. I’m an economist, but I promise not to bore you. Our current contribution is below 250 000 euros.
