1 Min Read

BERLIN, June 21 (Reuters) - Germany's budget committee has postponed a decision on orders for military equipment, including Corvette warships and drones, as Social Democrat (SPD) lawmakers want more time to discuss the 13 billion euro package, a senior party member said.

"The whole package is deferred," said SPD lawmaker Christine Lambrecht. "We have said we need more time for consultation," Asked whether there would be a decision next week, she said committee members were considering how to proceed.
