Questions on internet usage among families with children, promoting domestic tourism and epidemic monitoring will be included on a survey to be sent to all Hungarian households as part of the next “national consultation”, the state secretary of the Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office said in a video message on Saturday.
Csaba Dömötör said one question would address making internet usage free of charge for families with school-age children and for teachers during the epidemic.
