Diana Wallis MEP's husband Stewart Arnold declines seat


The husband of a Yorkshire and Humber MEP has decided not to take her seat when she steps down next month.

On Friday, Mr Arnold said he had decided not to take up the post. Ms Wallis resigned owing to the illness and Mr Arnold said he wanted to concentrate on supporting his wife. The seat has instead been offered to 36-year-old Rebecca Taylor. When it was announced Mr Arnold could take over, fellow ...


Wallis denies rumours that she will drop presidency candidac


ALDE leader opposes bid by Diana Wallis but Wallis says she will continue ‘until the end'. Is Diana Wallis going to see through her candidacy for the presidency of the European Parliament? Or is she about to be bought off by the promise of a vice-presidency? Those are the questions being turned over repeatedly in the corridors and committee rooms of Brussels and Strasbourg. In theory, there are three declared candidates for the presidency of the Parliament at the election of 17 January. Martin Schulz, the leader of the centre-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D), is the ...


Liberal MEP Wallis runs for European Parliament presidency


British Liberal MEP Diana Wallis has announced she will stand for the presidency of the European Parliament as an independent candidate, in a bid to derail the deal struck behind closed doors by the centre-right European People's Party (EPP) and the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) to replace Jerzy Buzek at the end of his term in January. "I feel that there is a growing sense that whilst we talk much about democracy we seem to have a blind spot when it comes to the most important of our own internal elections,” Wallis said, adding that democratic ...

A proper common sales law for Europe's common market | Viviane Reding and Diana Wallis
The US has one – and now EU sales law will give businesses and consumers one internal market, instead of 27 contract lawsAt a time when Europe is confronting serious economic headwinds, the European Union is committed to helping consumers and businesses get the most out of a market that stretches 3,000km from Lisbon to Helsinki. That's why this week the European commission has proposed an optional common European sales law.In the past 20 years Europe's single market has brought huge benefits – lower air fares, a 70% cut in mobile roaming charges and a giant leap in cross-border trade – but customers and businesses are still not taking full advantage of a market of 500 million people. Only 9% of British consumers buy online from another member state and only 9.3% of businesses in the European Union sell across EU borders.This contrasts with the internal market in the US, where a trader in Maryland can easily sell his products to a consumer in Alaska. In contract law terms, the Uni
Stewart Arnold statement on declining MEP post
Stewart Arnold's full statement on declining MEP post: "After a full consideration, I have made the decision not to take up the post of MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber. One of the contributory factors of Diana's resignation was her illness (as outlined in her letter of resignation) and I decided in the short term to give her the support she needs and not to take up the seat which would inevitably involve long periods away from home. I notified the Party on Thursday morning.
Diana's letter to members
The full version of Diana's resignation letter: Dear friend This is not an easy letter to write to inform you of my decision to resign as your Member of the European Parliament. You may have seen various reports in the press. I had hoped that this letter would have come to you first but unfortunately others decided to release the news in advance of what I was informed would officially be the case.

CITIZENS's BUSINESS! by Diana WallisIt is now a few days since I completed my first full week out of the Brussels bubble no longer having those letters MEP after my name; my verdict on life as a European citizen, - a relief.Ironically a good part of my first week was taken up with going to a conference at the European Law Academy in Trier. The first thought after my resignation was to cancel all engagements, but actually it is refreshing that people want your views without those letters after your name. For my part I was actually for once able to attend a whole conference on the Common European Sales Law, an issue I am greatly and genuinely interested in. Result, I am probably now better up to speed with it than when I was rapporteur! However the essential point to me from the conference was that this should be viewed as a trade enabling law for small businesses and consumers across Europe. As best it should enable cross borders transactions in a secure and protective way offering the
