[T]o avoid conflicts of interest [...] MEPs should not be able to take on any additional jobs that have any
lobbying element. Being an MEP is a responsible and full-time job, and MEPs do not require any additional income.
We also propose that there should be:
- Strict rules to ensure that MEPs do not receive money, gifts or hospitality above €50 from lobbyists;
- Effective prosecution of corruption;
- Elimination of the ‘revolving door’, with a two-year cooling-off period for MEPs once they have left the Parliament.
