The following spoke:


! Gröner who noted that a hearing organised on Women’s Rights and Equal Opportunities had identi-
fied a significant rise in prostitution during the Strasbourg part-sessions; she asked the President to
look into the matter together with the competent authorities (the President replied that she had
already written to the Mayor of Strasbourg on the matter; she promised to keep the speaker informed
as to the Mayor’s response);
! Banotti, Quaestor, who announced that, in response to repeated requests made by Mrs Plooij-van
Gorsel, two Dutch television channels could now be seen in Members’ offices;
! Roure, who pointed out that the rise in prostitution mentioned by Mrs Gröner was not limited to
Strasbourg but was also true during the Brussels part-sessions (the President replied that the matter
would also be looked into in Brussels and that the best course of action would subsequently be
decided upon);
