Czech lawmakers approved a draft law cutting growth of pensions for three years as part of government measures to reduce the budget deficit, the CTK newswire reported, citing the result of a parliamentary vote.

The opposition Social Democrats will probably veto the bill in the upper house of parliament, the Senate, and return it to the lower house for another vote, the newswire said.
