Partly due to coronavirus, making a living has become more difficult in Hungary, Csárdi called it “unacceptable” that pensioners and large families should have difficulties buying basic produce.
He said, and “hundreds of thousands cannot afford to put fresh fruit and veg on the table”.
Currently, VAT on restaurant services is 5%, while fruit is in the 27% bracket, he said, adding that there was room in the budget to reduce VAT accordingly.
