German Social Democratic Party proposals to introduce a minimal contribution level for sickness funds have foundered. Matthias Will of the SPD parliamentary party told Clinica that the sickness funds should no longer be concerned with the plans, as there is no political majority in favour of the plans. "It was simply a proposal put forward by two MP's and it is simply not going to carried any further," he said.
