Alex Agius Saliba appointed EuroParliament rapporteur regarding one ‘charger’ proposal

EU Parliament MP Alex Agius Saliba, has been appointed as a rapporteur for the same Parliament regarding the legislative proposal for one “charger” to be available for all.

Dr Agius Saliba will be leading negotiations with the EU Council on behalf of the EU Parliament.

In a Labour Party statement, Dr Agius Saliba said this proposal is a victory for European consumers to enable them to use one charger for their electronic apparatus.

He said he sees his role as a rapporteur for this sole charger will reduce the amount of discarded refuse but will also be a considerable and important factor for consumers to help them reduce their costs, estimated to reach €250 million annually.
