However not to consider at all the brought projects the Duma cannot.

The first project offered the preferential taxation of manufacturers of natural wine and the cognac, directing means for winemaking development. Rates of excises it was offered upolovinit. The government, naturally, has opposed, having specified that the norm establishing a special-purpose character of a tax privilege, will complicate tax administration as control of a target direction of the sums which have remained at the disposal of tax bearers of excises is almost unreal. The committee has supported the government, having recommended to the Duma to reject the project.

The governmental amendments to the law " have appeared it; About protection of the rights of consumers . Amendments are rather curious, as with a view of protection narrow the rights of consumers. The bill limits the right of consumers to contract cancellation at revealing in technically difficult or expensive goods of lacks. According to the law in force, the consumer has the right to terminate the purchase and sale contract at revealing of any lack of such goods, and according to the bill - only at revealing of an essential lack. On the other hand, the project establishes responsibility of the organisations and individual businessmen - importers for inadequate quality of the import goods which list affirms the government if in territory of Russia there is no the organisation which is authorised on acceptance and satisfaction of requirements of consumers concerning quality of the goods of foreign manufacture or carrying out corresponding functions on the basis of the contract with the foreign manufacturer. The project guarantees protection of the rights of the consumers getting the goods through the Internet. The right to establish additional obligations concerning the lacks of the goods which have been found out after a warranty period, established by the manufacturer is given to sellers and manufacturers.
