The following spoke:
 Before the vote on amendment 31, Mrs Kauppi proposed an oral amendment to this text, on behalf of
the PPE-DE: ‘notes that it is essential that by definition a pension includes the cover for longevity
through the purchase of an annuity and takes the view that supplementary pensions which also
cover other biometric risks are particularly advantageous for the person covered and for society as a
whole. Accordingly, in the future legal framework for supplementary pensions, they could be given
preference’.

The President established that there was no opposition to voting on this oral amendment which was
adopted.
