MOSCOW, November 13, 3:43 /ITAR-TASS/. The State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament will hear a report by Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov during the Government Hour question-and-answer session here on Wednesday.
House Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said the Agriculture Minister would make a report on the implementation of the programme for the development of the sector. "House members will have questions, of course, about agriculture development and the state of affairs in those regions which were seriously affected by unfavourable climatic conditions," Naryshkin pointed out. He added that the parliamentarians would also inquire "how the sector fares in the light of Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization".
Naryshkin said the House also intends to pass a resolution on the strength of a report about the agriculture development programme in the 2008-2012 period.
The House meeting's agenda also provides for consideration in the first reading of a government-presented bill on amendments to the 2013 budget about approving an additional revenue of 40.5 billion roubles which is to be used for measures to offset deficit. The main reports will be made by Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and Audit Chamber Chairperson Tatiana Golikova.
