The big event in the European Parliament this week will be the vote on the nominated president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. The German Defence Minister will make a speech in the European Parliament in Strasbourg at 9am (French time) tomorrow. That will be followed by a debate with MEPs until 12:30pm.
