EU is still missing comprehensive EU strategy on Mental Health

"While there are many current initiatives addressing mental health, we are still missing comprehensive EU strategy on Mental Health.

The approach of the Commission has been very hesitant but we clearly see the support of the member states and pressure from the Parliament so believe that soon we will also see development on the side of the Commission," says Tomas Zdechovský, co-chair of MEP Alliance for mental health.

Open letter to European Commission due to the planned restriction on lead ammunition: REACH cannot be applied to hunters’ use of lead gunshots over wetlands

Open letter to European Commission due to the planned restriction on lead ammunition: REACH cannot be applied to hunters’ use of lead gunshots over wetlands

The current Commission proposal amending Annex XVII to the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 which restricts the use of lead ammunition prohibits hunters to use or carry lead gunshots for shooting in or around wetlands within a radius of 100 meters. However, the REACH Regulation applies only to commercial operators to ensure that chemicals do not adversely affect human health or the environment. If REACH regulation should be applied even to hunters it would be unprecedented expansion of the scope of REACH.

My story

I have always been interested in politics. That is why I decided in 2006 to join KDU-ČSL, Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People\'s Party. Although I ran successful business dealing with crisis management, I realized that if I really wanted to change something, I had to be a firm part of it. Therefore, in 2014, I ran for the European Parliament as number three on the list and I succeeded. I became a Member of the European Parliament. In 2019, thanks to your support, I made it again. This is why I can still be MEP to protect your interests.
