A Finance Ministry representative said during a discussion of the Knesset Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs that the ministry plans to increase the rent paid by the elderly, the disabled and the Holocaust refugees, to about 10% of their income, compared to the 8% they currently pay. The rent is expected to rise by about 70 shekels for most of them. According to the assistant of Committee Chair MK Danny Danon (Likkud), the Ministry of Construction and Housing was prepared to cancel the raise, but the Ministry of Finance insisted on it.
