The request from the House comes a day before the third economic emergency package takes effect. That package will run longer, until next summer, but support will be phased out step by step. On Tuesday almost the entire Chamber gave its approval to that package. But now there are again question marks about the austerity. “Shouldn’t we take that up to the light again?”, Asks CU party leader Segers on Wednesday during the corona debate.
This idea is widely held in parliament, with the opposition and coalition. For example, the left-wing parties want the cabinet to indicate an additional package, with targeted measures for the sectors affected by the new measures.
PvdA leader Asscher thinks of catering, culture, tourism: “The cabinet must account for the effects these measures are already having.” GL party leader Klaver would like to see the partner test in corona assistance for the self-employed still be discontinued, so that a family with one self-employed person and a salaried partner does not have to make ends meet on the income of the latter alone.
There is also enthusiasm for more economic support on the right side of the House. If it is up to the PVV, the knife will not go into the support package at all. Just like the VVD, the party mainly draws attention to the catering sector. VVD party leader Dijkhoff points out that the reduction of the support package was for if there were no additional restrictive measures. “If you do take extra measures that cause additional damage, the package should bounce.” Dijkhoff wants to know from the cabinet ‘to what extent this is happening’ and asks to ‘go the extra mile’ if necessary.
Trade unions FNV and CNV also call on the cabinet on Wednesday morning in this newspaper to reverse austerity measures in the aid package. The unions fear that companies will now reorganize faster and send people out.
The unions and employers will join Ministers Koolmees (Social Affairs) and Wiebes (Economic Affairs) again on Thursday for the weekly ‘corona polder meeting’. Last week, Minister Hoekstra (Finance) said in the debate about the third aid package that he was ready to put ‘the prod’ in the package at any time in the event of a second wave and to see whether the austerity measures should continue.
