Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner spoke out against another financial relief package for citizens before the summer break. According to a preliminary report, Lindner told the news portal “t-online” that he had read such statements: “But there is little financial and legal leeway if we don’t save elsewhere. All proposals must take this into account.”

He advises “letting the previous measures work”. A family of four has just been partially relieved of over 1,000 euros. However, he recommends new measures for the coming year.

Above all, the small and middle incomes would have deserved relief. “In view of the high inflation, we must above all prevent cold progression,” said Lindner.
