I received a mail back from Gerard Gibbons, (P. de Rossa's P.A.)
saying that it will be debated in EP on 22-25th of September.
"Just to let you know that as this issue is still being debated in
the EP, the Political Group leaders decided last Thursday to take it
off the agenda of this week's plenary session and to place it on the
agenda of the 22-25 September Session."

Some definate good news!
