Committee head Zsolt Molnár, of the opposition Socialists, said that Hungary plans to introduce rules that allow only a limited number of SIM cards to be bought by private individuals or companies.
Deputy head Szilárd Németh, of the ruling Fidesz, said that the number is planned to be limited at 20 for private individuals and 100 for companies.
According to recent press reports, organised criminals obtained large quantities of SIM cards in Hungary, many of which are believed to have ended up in the hands of terrorists.
