The deal is not done - Conciliation Committee

407-57 it finished - thanks to the French insistence that they could still impose 3 strikes without a judge, only allowing an appeal to a court after disconnection.

The Commissioner will be very upset - her term is likely to finish without the new Package being finalised. Now it goes to the Council, and unless they cave, on to Conciliation.

She has advised them to cave in - after all, its a single amendment pushed by the Brits and French that could bring down the entire package. She stated:
"For many, it is of very high symbolic and political value. I call on the Council of Ministers to assess the situation very carefully, also in the light of the importance of the telecoms reform for the sector and for the recovery of our European economy."
