In this Occasional Paper, Nazaré da Costa Cabral analyses the relationship between the 'brake law' and the right of parliamentary amendment in the budgetary field, including the historical background of its 'soft and hard' versions and its current context.


The paper ends with a fundamental question: 'Should there or should there not be limits on the exercise of parliamentary amendment in budgetary matters?', weighing the pros and cons of such limits and their constitutionality.
