German cabinet to decide next week on Swiss tax deal mediation

BERLIN, Nov 23 (Reuters) - A spokesman for Germany’s finance ministry said the cabinet would decide next Wednesday on whether to take a Swiss-German tax agreement rejected by the upper house of parliament to a mediation committee in a bid to save the legislation.

“The deal is worth fighting for,” said ministry spokesman Martin Kotthaus after the Bundesrat upper house voted against the government bill, which had already been approved by the lower house.
