The Belgian parliament has rejected advice from an independent integrity committee to ban the distribution of free beer and wine to MPs, Belgian media reported Friday. Free alcohol for MPs was introduced in the late 1990s to prevent deputies from going to bars during debates. Following a brawl, the parliament's chairman asked for an independent advice on the future of free alcohol distribution, which party leaders rejected.
