The representative of Estonia to the Control Committee of the Nordic Investment Bank is appointed on the basis of subsection 2 (3) of the Act on the Ratification of the Agreement between Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden concerning the Nordic Investment Bank and the Payment Agreement between the Republic of Estonia and the Nordic Investment Bank, and the Statutes of the abovementioned Investment Bank. The Control Committee is formed with the aim of ensuring conformity of the activities of the bank to its Statutes.

The Riigikogu rejected at the first reading the Bill on Amendments to the Basic Schools and Upper Secondary Schools Act (1 SE), initiated by the Estonian Centre Party Faction, which had been intended to raise the minimum rate of school lunch support per student from 78 cents to one euro per school day.

The representative of the lead committee, member of the Cultural Affairs Committeee Kalle Muuli said that the rise of school lunch support should be discussed in the planning of the state budget and not within the framework of this Bill.

Andres Ammas and Märt Sults took the floor on behalf of factions during the debate.

The result of voting: 41 votes in favour and 31 against. Thus the Bill is dropped from the proceedings.
