South West MEP makes final shortlist for an MEP Award for the second year running

Tuesday, 28 May 2013
South West Conservative MEP Julie Girling has been named on the final shortlist for an MEP Award for the second year running.

In 2012 she was nominated by EU policy stakeholders for making an excellent contribution in the domain of animal welfare, this year she has been recognised for her work on the Environment.

Mrs Girling is a member of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) Committee and in the nominations was praised for her "calm, measured and insightful contributions" to debates and her efforts to subject legislation to "the highest level of scrutiny and analysis".

The other two MEPs in contention for this award are French Green MEP Sandrine Bélier and Bulgarian Liberal MEP Vladko Panayotov.

The MEP Awards are organised annually by the Parliament Magazine and the shortlist is produced after stakeholders nominate MEPs in each policy area. With the shortlists now announced, voting is open solely to MEPs with the winners to be announced at the MEP Awards ceremony to be held in Brussels on 25 June.
