French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said in a statement following a meeting of the Council of Ministers to deal with the incident that the Council will submit next week a bill to organize and manage donations for the restoration of the archaeological cathedral.

He sets a legal framework for the campaign of national donations launched by President Emmanuel Macron.

He added that the Notre Dame bill would provide for tax cuts for donors and the launch of an international competition for architects to build a new tower for the cathedral.

Philippe said it would be determined whether the tower would be rebuilt as it was in the nineteenth century, Building a new tower is in line with the techniques and challenges of the current era.

The donations have already begun to flow from around the world, totaling at least 800 million euros from, among others, Apple and the European Central Bank, as well as thousands of anonymous people.

Macron announced on Tuesday that he wanted to rebuild the 13th-century cathedral within five years.
