(ANSA) - Rome, July 24 - The possibility of broadening the
plateau for assistance for Italians left without a job or
pension by recent changes to retirement rules is "not likely,"
said Senator Gilberto Pichetto Fratin speaking on the sidelines
of Senate meetings on Tuesday.
The centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party Senator is
the presenter in parliament of the government's hotly contested
26-billion-euro package of public-spending cuts.
Known as the 'esodati' ('exiled ones'), Italians who fall
into this category were numbered 390,000 by the pension agency
INPS, although Labor Minister Elsa Fornero hotly disputes that
figure.
Fornero came under fire when the agency's figures, which
vary greatly from original government estimates of 65,000, were
published in June.
Unions have long argued that "hundreds of thousands" fall
under this category.
The government said that it would safeguard a further
55,000 people in addition to the 65,000 it had originally
planned to help following the published figures.
"There are not enough resource to reach beyond the added
55,000," said Fratin.
