Austrian parliament approves banning smoking in restaurants and child care leave

Austrian Parliamentary sources said on Wednesday that the parliament approved a number of local regulatory issues such as banning smoking in restaurants starting from the first of November and giving a child care leave for the father as well.

The parliament has begun extensive discussions this morning on a number of issues, most notably the introduction of new Austrian Chancellor Brigitte Bierlein members of her new transitional government to parliament.

Bierlein’s government is the first government of experts outside political parties, formed after a corruption scandal ousted the former government coalition of the People’s and Freedom Party.
