Estonia -No support for freeze of public sector wages -December 04, 2013

The chairman of the parliamentary financial committee stated that the parliament will not support the latest ultimatum made by the finance ministry to cut costs of government ministries if his demands are not met in the parliament. The finance minister claimed that there is a 24m euro hole in the budget revenues and if proposals, for instance to restrict VAT refunds of company cars, were not accepted, he would have no option but to cut spending of government ministries by 1.2%.
