. Member of State Duma Committee on budget and taxes Vera Ganza lamented the lack of salaries because of the high costs of hospitality expenses.

So Gansa responded to the words of the speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, who made the remark who came to the meeting wearing t-shirts deputies from the Communist party Valery Rashkin and Denis Parfenov. The speaker reminded the MPs that the salary of the Deputy will be enough to buy a tie and a jacket. He also stressed that the income of the deputies, as a rule, higher than the wages of those who voted for them.

Hansa, in turn, said that most of the salary is spent on business expenses because of the fact that the MPs do not allocate funds for entertainment expenses.

«I went to the orphanage. <…> Is not just. I ask the cleaner, I asked that, the other. I had to buy everything. Plus the party,» reports her words to the radio station «Moscow Says».

The MP stressed that due to these expenses, she sometimes has to get into credit card debt. Gansa also suggested that having other sources of income to the members «lives easier».

Later, the Deputy called on the public to stop counting of the parliamentary salary, Recalling that some categories of people get more.


Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee for the control and regulations of Mikhail Romanov proposed to discuss the question of a possible payment of hospitality expenses of MPs. He noted that many parliamentarians to assist voters from their own salaries.

«I, in turn, also consider it necessary to discuss this issue, we will after a regional week with colleagues in this issue discuss,» said Romanov.

However, Volodin reacted to the proposal skeptically. He expressed concern that the funds for entertainment expenses may be spent for other purposes. In addition, the implementation of such ideas, said the speaker of the lower house of Parliament, requires the involvement of other structures.

«These proposals are in conflict with the status of Deputy of the state Duma, because to manage these structures is necessary to create a Directorate, and it is belong to the competence of Executive authorities, business structures», — he stressed.

Volodin also recalled the existence of various government programs and national projects, which were created for solving particular problems of individual cities and towns.
