". I have abstained from voting today on the Directive on unfair commercial practices. The reason is not that I oppose this kind of legislation in principle, but that this is the umpteenth compromise that has been presented with regard to the internal market. Four years on from the Lisbon Summit, I note that little progress has been made. Every day this Parliament advocates following the Lisbon Strategy, but when it actually has the opportunity to opt for the completion of the internal market by means of mutual recognition and possibly maximum harmonisation, it shrinks from it. Whenever we talk about the consumer, emotions flare up. Various amendments do afford the consumer protection, which is a good thing in itself, but on the other hand they do not take account of the costs this entails for traders. In my view, the present draft legislation does not yet strike the correct balance."@en1
