MEP statement in European Parliament gains mutual support

29th November 2011

Benenden Healthcare Society last week expressed its support for five MEPs calling for a re-launch of the European statute for mutual companies.

The Society joined other significant European mutuals such as MGEN, Vzajemna, Mútua General de Catalunya and La Mutualité Socialiste.

See below for the full text of a press release issued by the Mutuelle Générale de L’Education Nationale [www.mgen.fr]: 

European mutual societies’ support to the parliamentary initiative on the creation of a European statute for mutual companies

A group of European mutual societies from several European countries (France,United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain and Slovenia) wishes to support the initiative of MEPs Marc Tarabella, Regina Bastos, Canfin Pascal, Marie-Christine Vergiat and Renate Weber for a re-launch of the European statute for mutual companies.

The five MPs tabled in the European Parliament a written statement on the introduction of European statutes for mutual societies, associations and foundations, echoing the resolution adopted on February 19th, 2009 on social economy.

This initiative comes at a particularly opportune time, following the announcement in the Single Market Act, published on 27th October by M. Michel Barnier, of a study in 2011 on the situation of mutual societies in all Member States, to examine in particular their cross-border activities and obstacles to their development.

European mutual societies are aware of the issues at stake and of the need for their future to develop this open border in order to maximize their entrepreneurial potential within the European Union.

They call on the European Commission to submit a proposal for a statute. Thus, they will be able to offer to European citizens a different form of entrepreneurship and of access to goods and services in the European Union with an economic model that has proven its strength in the context of the crisis.
