Sajjad has recently contributed an article to New Direction magazine on Subsidiarity and how, as Legal Affairs Spokesperson and rapporteur on the Annual Subsidiarity and Proportionality Report, he is taking forward the Prime Minister's reform agenda from within the European Parliament
Returning powers to national parliaments is a key feature of the Prime Ministers EU Reform plans. Saj has been tasked to deliver this in the European Parliament. Sajjad's article for The Asians, looks at how this can be achieved.
Writing for Conservative Home, Sajjad and Ashley Fox, who is MEP for South West England and leader of Britain’s Conservative MEPs, set out why an enhanced role for national parliaments for member states within the EU, is an achievable aim.
"We will be bound by our own values and I believe European citizens today are wanting for us to react in a very generous way and in a way that recognises the rights of these refugees and indeed the moral responsibilities that we hold as well."
A vital part of Sajjad's work in the European Parliament is Chairing the Delegation to the EU-Armenia and EU-Azerbaijan Parliamentary Cooperation Committees and the EU-Georgia Parliamentary Association Committee (DSCA). In respect of Georgia, the role of the Delegation is to strengthening of the bilateral cooperation between Georgia and the EU and thus provide the basis on which Georgia proceeds with its reform agenda.
In the wake the new Liberal Democrat Leader’s “car crash” interview when he was questioned about how his Christian beliefs impact on his politics, Saj discusses the interaction between religion and politics with BBC Radio Lancashire’s Mike Stevens.
On the day that the European Parliament finally approves the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) – the largest Trade Agreement in the history of the world – Sajjad writes for British Influence.
