      Lapid to Oppose Purchase of Plane for PM


      Finance Minister Yair Lapid is set to present his opposition to the proposal to establish a committee to weigh the purchase of an official aircraft for the use of the Prime Minister and President. "In such times of financial austerity, maintenance and storage costs of such an aircraft must be considered versus a more conservative approach," explained Minister Lapid.
