Senate Budget Committee To answer questions about typhoon damage, October 15th, 4:33 am
At the Diet session, Prime Minister Abe and others will attend the House of Councilors Budget Committee from 15th, and questions will be held on how to deal with damage caused by Typhoon No. 19.
In the National Assembly, following a question from the House of Representatives Budget Committee last week, on the 15th and 16th, Prime Minister Abe and others attended the question at the House of Councilors Budget Committee.
In response to the damage caused by Typhoon No. 19, the opposition party called for the government to postpone the committee, saying, “The government should give priority to disaster response,” while the ruling party “needs to discuss measures.” As such, we expressed the idea that it should be held as scheduled, and on the 15th and 16th, we decided to hold additional time for intensive questions about typhoons.
In the committee, Prime Minister Abe first reports on the damage caused by the typhoon, and then each party asks questions about the government's response.
After that, while the ruling party asked the government to explain countermeasures against the declining birthrate, the opposition party decided to just give away the problems that executives of Kansai Electric Power received large amounts of money, etc. it continues.
