Earlier the state Duma Council has decided that the state Duma will finish work at 17.00 by reducing a large lunch break for an hour.

«There is also a proposal, we discussed this issue with representatives of the factions. Understanding our statement that in the regions it would be right on Friday to go, it gives the opportunity to work in the regions on Saturday and Sunday… So if you until Tuesday I think and within the factions will discuss this proposal, it will allow us on Friday to finish the job early, given that many planes fly in 16-17-18 hours», — said Volodin at a meeting of the state Duma.

He explained that if you take one hour a great lunch break environment, we can be shut down at 16.00.

«This is a total time save and is not reduced, but due to internal self-organization to optimize your work. Given that Mr Lebedev (Lebedev, Vice-speaker of the state Duma – ed.) said that if we are to 16.00 will work, we don’t need to Friday break. Then it gives us the opportunity to complete the work (on Friday) to three» — said Volodin.
