Munich / Berlin (AP) - The CSU top rejects the proposed by their own country group in the Bundestag penalty tax on cheap flights in Europe. "This is not a concerted proposal of the CSU. In general, the CSU is a tax-reducing and not a tax-raising party », said Secretary-General Markus Blume of dpa. Blume responded to a report in the "Bild" newspaper, according to which the CSU country group demand a "competitive price tax" on cheap flights within Europe. Flights that cost less than 50 euros should therefore be subject to a penalty tax.
