to the Commission
Rule 130
Nadja Hirsch (ALDE)

 Subject:  Prime Minister Orbán's financial incentives to have more children
 Answer in writing 

The Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, recently announced an initiative offering Hungarian women significant financial incentives to have more children. These incentives include government loans, mortgage schemes, other sureties and income tax exemptions.

1. In general, what view does the Commission take of the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban’s, intention to offer financial benefits only to Hungarian women and mothers?

2. Does the Commission consider the initiative discriminatory against men and fathers as the financial benefits are specifically available only to women?

3. Does it consider that implementing the initiative would constitute a breach of the principle of equal treatment of nationals of other EU countries in Hungary?
