The Constitution Law Committee was on Monday yet to issue a crucial piece of statement on the legislation concerning health and social care reform (Sote),reported Finnish language daily Kaleva.
The committee will continue with the work on Tuesday. The members of the committee were very silent after their meeting on Monday. The member of the committee did not comment whether the statement will be completed on Tuesday.
"At times we may get 20 pages complete in ten minutes, but sometimes we may get stuck. We have a lot of discussion and many want to have their views heard. We are in the general discussion. It may go to next week if we are not successful. Hope this does not happen," said committee member Markus Lohi.
The committee went through the draft statement on Monday.
"The reading of the draft statement lasted for four years," said another committee member Matti Torvinen.
The current government will not have enough time to deal with Sote legislation if the Constitutional Committee's statement reveal that there are still many constitutional problems.
Efforts have been made to make changes to the law and, in particular, to the freedom of act provision in the legislation. However, it is not yet known whether changes would be enough from the constitutional point of view.
