The Riigikogu decided not to support two draft Resolutions
Draft Resolution of the Riigikogu “Making a proposal to the Government of the Republic to develop an action plan to establish Tallinn Hospital” (53 OE), submitted by the Estonian Centre Party Group, called on the Government to work out the relevant action plan.
The presenters saw a need for Tallinn Hospital with state-of-the-art spatial design that fully meets the needs of modern infection control, creates additional hospital bed capacity, enhances the capability of the health care system in crisis situations, allows better cooperation among the medical personnel, and improves the accessibility to medical treatment.
During the debate, Irja Lutsar (Estonia 200), Jevgeni Ossinovski (Social Democratic Party), Margit Sutrop (Reform Party), Tanel Kiik (Centre party), and Kalle Grünthal (Estonian Conservative People’s Party) took the floor.
The Riigikogu did not support the draft Resolution and it was dropped from the proceedings. The result of voting: 17 votes in favour and 47 against.
Draft Resolution of the Riigikogu “Making a proposal to the Government of the Republic to abandon the plan to eliminate the increased basic exemption for a spouse” (38 OE), submitted by Isamaa Parliamentary Group, intended to make the relevant proposal to the Government. The presenters felt that families needed more support than they have received so far.
The Riigikogu did not support the draft Resolution and it was dropped from the proceedings. The result of voting: 17 votes in favour and no votes against. The support of at least 51 members of the Riigikogu was needed to pass the Resolution.
Video recording will be available to watch later on the Riigikogu YouTube channel.
