The Riigikogu concluded the second reading of the Bill on Amendments to the Fisheries Market Organisation Act (771 SE). The amendments to the Bill enable to enact legislation on granting fisheries aid of minor importance and the state aid covered by block exemption, for which there is no need to ask previous permission from the European Commission. Beginning from entry into force of the Act, the above aid may also be granted by foundations. On the motion of the Rural Affairs Committee the third reading of the Bill is included in the agenda of tomorrow’s plenary sitting.

The Riigikogu concluded the first reading of two Bills:

The Bill on Amendments to the Acts Related to the Issue and Use of Privatisation Vouchers (788 SE), initiated by the Government of the Republic, provides for the extension of the final term of the use of privatisation vouchers as means of payment for the privatisation of land and living quarters up till 31 December 2006.

The Law of Succession Bill (761 SE), initiated by the Government of the Republic, aims at organising the private law system. The Bill brings the contents of the law of succession into conformity with the amendments related to the entry into force of the Law of Obligations Act and a new Civil Code. The Bill does not make any amendments to the main structures of the Law of Succession Act nor to its general principles. The Bill includes the replacement of the so-called receiving system of inheritance in the valid Law of Succession Act with the so-called waiver system.

At Question Time Prime Minister Andrus Ansip answered the questions about the Tallinn – Tartu motorway, about the transition to Euro and about the Bills. Minister of the Environment Villu Reiljan answered the question about the gas pipe passing through the Baltic Sea. Minister of Internal Affairs Kalle Laanet answered the questions about the salaries of the officials of the Rescue Service.
