Hiltrud Breyer (born 22 August 1957) is a German politician and former Member of the European Parliament with the German Green Party, part of the European Greens and sits on the European Parliament's Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality and its Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.

She is a substitute for the Committee on Legal Affairs, substitute for the Delegation to the EU-Romania Joint Parliamentary Committee.




In 2008, German television station RTL reported about members of the European Parliament—including Breyer—who signed the attendance register on Friday mornings to receive the EP's daily allowance of 284 Euro before leaving Strasbourg immediately for the weekend.[1][2][3] Breyer later denied these allegations.
