||Extract from the doorstep: SOUNDBITE (English): Martin SCHULZ, EP President :
"I think the conclusion of our meeting with President Barroso is that there is no paralysis, a lot of activities are lying ahead, this is the other way around, normally people fear the end of a period where everything is pending and people are waiting for the election, etc. No the conclusion of the debate between Barroso and the group leaders is quite clear, there is a lot of requests to bring ongoing legislation to an end, especially the MFF and everything which is related to 72 regulation to the MFF, the amending budget, the budget for 2014, then the whole legislation on the road for industrial and environment, climate change questions, so a lot of things to do and I was quite surprised that even the Parliamentarian groups are not for the time being looking more to the elections , more to the lawmaking duties they have, the other way around. They take it very serious to work until the last day as law make."
