He co-hosted a special summit on the low carbon economy and applauded the efforts of the EU.

Passenger data

New agreement scrutinised

A new agreement has been struck on information from passengers flying in and out of the EU.

In future all airlines flying to and from destinations in the EU will have to transfer passenger data to national authorities on request, the plan says.

The US, Canada and Australia already get such data from the EU.

The Record Europe investigates whether the measures are justified in the face of the threat of terrorism.
