Senate President LR Gérard Larcher assured Thursday that the upper house “would initiate the debate” on pension reform this fall as part of the social security budget, after the executive’s decision to open a new cycle of consultations.
It is an essential reform which requires courage (…) to save our pension system, affirmed Grard Larcher on BFMTV and RMC.
Grard Larcher was questioned about the statements of Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne to AFP, who ruled out a forced passage this fall and postponed the adoption of a bill until the end of winter.
The President of the Senate considered it necessary to extend working hours, to do so in a concerted way that takes into account long careers, those who started working less than 20 years old. Everything is in the amendment that the Snat since 2020 proposes each finance bill, he underlined.
Grard Larcher announced that the Senate, where the right is in the majority, will tackle this reform without waiting for the government’s text. This is a subject that the Social Affairs Committee will address as soon as the social security financing bill (PLFSS) is examined this fall. It will initiate the debate, it is also a way to enlighten the debate, he promised, without specifying whether the right would introduce an amendment as in recent years.
For his part, the boss of the LR deputies Olivier Marleix welcomed progress on the part of the government with its decision to resume consultation. The idea of forced entry was madness. The punitive approach makes no sense, he said on Sud Radio.
