Ministry receives Fiscal Council request on supplemental information

Interview

 The National Economy Ministry on Monday said the Fiscal Council had officially requested supplemental information on the 2013 budget bill, responding to a query by MTI.

The parties are consulting on a time for an answer, which the ministry will deliver, it said. Fiscal Council chairman told MTI after a meeting of the body last Tuesday that a decision had been taken to request more information from the National Economy Ministry on next year's budget.

The Fiscal Council made an earlier request for supplemental information on the budget and the background material was delivered late in August. The Fiscal Council is soon expected to deliver another opinion on the 2013 budget bill.

Parliament approved the main revenue and expenditure figures of the budget bill on July 12. But several fiscal measures, such as a HUF 300 billion workplace protection plan, have since been unveiled that could impact the targeted deficit.
