It was an amendment to a European Parliament report. Which they then reversed.
The European Parliament does not have the power to initiate legislation. Only the Commission can do that. It's one of the oddities of the European system. The Commission and everyone else produce reports and that should all get fed into the legislating process. But the Commission then puts out all the bills. These then go to the Council of Ministers and the Parliament, who have lots of fun amending them, before they can be paseed.
It's all very complicated, and also some of it has changed since the Lisbon
Constitution Treaty provisions came into force after the last Parliamentary elections and the new Commission took over.
