A government approved proposal to reduce prices
Parliament on Friday approved the government’s proposal providing for measures to contain the increase in energy and agricultural food prices, which include suspending minimum tax rates on petroleum products (ISP).
The suggestion was PS, PSD, IL, BE and Livre’s sole deputy vote, with Chega, PCP and PAN abstaining.
Among other measures, the The government initiative provides for the suspension of minimum ISP minimum rates, applicable to diesel and unleaded petrol, specifying that this can be fixed “with a minimum of €0”..
The goal is for this tax to have an effect equivalent to what would result in the reduction of the value-added tax on fuel to a rate of 13%.
