On Tuesday morning MEPs will debate progress in boosting security, as agreed at EU level. Improving the interoperability of databases and data exchange, preventing radicalisation and progress in implementing the passenger name record (PNR) rules approved in Spring 2016, are likely to be raised in the debate with the Council and Commissioners Dimitris Avramopoulos and Sir Julian King.

This debate was moved forward from Tuesday afternoon and will now begin immediately after the debate on the EU mechanism on democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights in the EU.

This will be the first time that Sir Julian King addresses the House.
