‘Three amendments proposing to have a “moratorium” on 5G deployment in France – first spotted by news websites Numerama and Next INpact – were tabled before the French National Assembly during its committee’s examination of the bill to combat climate change’ Three amendments proposing to have a “moratorium” on 5G deployment in France – first spotted by news websites Numerama and Next INpact – were tabled before the French National Assembly during its committee’s examination of the bill to combat climate change. EURACTIV France reports. The frequencies dedicated to 5G networks should be “provisionally suspended” until “the results of the 5G evaluation on health and climate” are presented to parliament, according to the proposed amendments 587 and 746.
Ecology Generation MP Delphine Batho, as well as Ecology Democracy Solidarity MPs Cédric Villani and Matthieu Orphelin, were among the MPs who signed the proposals for amendments. The group of MPs tabling the amendments reiterated the PT12.1 proposal of the Citizen’s Climate Convention – a panel representing French citizens on climate issues – and drew inspiration from recommendations made by the country’s High Climate Council in its “Controlling the carbon impact of 5G” report. It seems unlikely that these amendments will ultimately be voted on due to the lack of support from President Emmanuel Macron’s La République en Marche, which boasts a 269-member majority in parliament. However, the special commission in charge of the bill is expected to have prepared the text by 19 March. In parallel, the Paris city council is due to approve a new mobile phone charter and the creation of a Paris Observatory this week, which should approve the deployment of 5G across the French capital.
