UPDATE 1-Dutch waiting on loan terms for Greek aid vote

* Finance ministry awaiting IMF/EU review results

* Parliament will have to pass a budget bill

(Adds background)

AMSTERDAM, April 26 (BestGrowthStock) – The Dutch Finance Ministry
said on Monday it will wait until it knows the full details of
an aid package for Greece, including the budget reduction
measures the package will impose, before submitting a bill to
parliament for a vote.

A finance ministry spokesman said the ministry was waiting
for the European Commission and International Monetary Fund to
complete an ongoing review before taking the technical step of
informing parliament the aid is needed.

“We know the financial conditions of the loans but what
still has to become clear are the measures Greece will take to
reduce the budget deficit,” the spokesman said. “We need first
to know what the budget reduction measures are that would be
coupled to the program.”

After the ministry informs parliament the aid is needed, it
will have to submit a supplementary budget bill for a vote.

That could be delayed slightly by the chamber being in
recess until May 10, although it is expected to vote during the
break if needed. A majority in parliament expressed support for
an aid package on April 15.
Greece’s finance minister said on Sunday he expected the
country’s aid package to arrive in time to avert a debt default.
