The Federal Government had based the amount it passed on the regions and language communities on growth figures of 1% and 0% inflation, figures that Ecomonic Planning Bureau presented it with on 12 February. However, more recent figures from the Planning Bureau predict growth of 1.3%.
This would title the regions and language communities to 47.3 million euro more. Furthermore, the planning bureau bow also predicts inflation of 0.2% which would mean 77.1 million euro extra from the regions and languages communities. A total sum of 124.4 million euro.
Bills outstanding at the Justice Department
The Court of Auditors also criticised the Federal Government for having allowed a situation to arise whereby the Justice Department is now behind with payments to the tune of 101 million euro.
