Belgian prime minister Charles Michel has defended his budget for mobility which encourages alternatives to car use after it was attacked by opposition politicians.
The mobility plan sits alongside other policies including spending cuts that have been blocked by opponents, leading to crisis talks in the past week.
Among the changes being introduced are a tax on fuel cards provided to company employees, which critics say goes against the government’s promise to reduce the tax burden on companies and simply uses them as a source of revenue.
In other measures, the government has proposed that employees with a company car will in future be able to exchange their vehicle in return for a salary increase equivalent to the leasing value of their car.
