Parliament will continue its work with a three-day session next week. Representatives will still be able to vote on Tuesday mornings, including deciding on forint currency loans and the government’s proposal for fair banks, as well as amending next year’s budget on the basis of their proposed changes.
As usual, the sitting of the House will begin at 1 pm on Monday, with interpellations, urgent questions and questions following the speeches on the agenda.
Parliament will then again depart from its previous practice and hold votes on Tuesday, so Members will be able to debate only the committee’s summary amendments to the proposals they intend to adopt on the second day of the week.
Thus, on Tuesday morning, the Parliament can decide, among other things, on the proposals of the Ministry of Justice on the conversion of foreign currency loans into forint and on fair banks. Minister of Justice László Trócsányi emphasized in the parliamentary debate on the issue, that as a result of the proposals, the debt of foreign currency debtors and the interest on loans will also fall significantly.
More than 500 amendments to the budget for next year are expected to be voted on, including some 60 to 70 pro-government changes.
These include, for example, the proposal that a total of five Fidesz and Christian Democrat politicians would provide hundreds of millions of dollars in non-recoverable costs for public utility chimney sweepers.
Members will also be able to adopt new laws on scientific research, development and innovation and European associations.
The agenda for the second sitting will be followed by a general debate on the eight motions after the votes. Among other things, Zoltán Balog, Minister of Human Resources, may be discussing changes to the Public Education Act that, if approved by parents, would not allow students to repeat grades in grades higher than first grade and transfer educational and professional services to the Education Office.
Zoltán Balog’s social change initiative, which would prohibit cage fighting involving children under the age of 14, along with more child protection measures, is also on the agenda.
On Tuesday, they could also discuss a motion for the Parliament to award the title of Villages of Loyalty to settlements in West Hungary returning to Hungary after World War I.
Parliament will conduct a general debate on five legislative amendments, three of which are related to tobacco trade and to traffic.
At this point, MPs are expected to discuss a pro-government bill that would require tobacco companies to pay a steep increase in sales revenue based on extraordinary health care. The debate could also begin with a proposal to restrict the sale of tobacco products to a public or concessionaire authorized wholesaler, and to the future sale of chewing gum, menthol candy, public transport tickets and a mobile recharge card.
At the end of next week’s meeting, the government’s proposal to ban the sale of daily consumer goods to larger businesses that are loss-making in subsequent business years may be on the agenda. The Cabinet would expect companies with net sales of between $ 50 and $ 50 billion in two consecutive business years to make a profit. The proposal would also ban large supermarkets or hypermarkets in metropolitan areas of the World Heritage Site (MTI).
