But the Liberal Party continues to refuse to agree to an agreement. There are simply too few billions on the table.
– The Liberal Party is not ready to make an agreement at present, because the price the government will pay to eradicate Danish mink breeding and thus delete an entire business is far too low. We can not take part in that, says the party’s finance spokesman, Troels Lund Poulsen.
Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Mogens Jensen (S) has stated in a parliamentary response from the end of October that it will cost the state between 2.3-2.8 billion kroner in compensation for the mink breeders.
That was before the decision to kill all the mink was made.
However, the Liberal Party demands that the government provide mink breeders and other relevant parts of the profession with full compensation for a double-digit billion amount.
The exact amount will be kept by Troels Lund in the negotiating room.
– We do not slow down that an agreement can be made. After all, the government can make an agreement with its parliamentary basis. We are not a support party. You can not say that it is our responsibility, says the V-rapporteur.
– If the government wants the Liberal Party in an agreement, then the government must come up with a better offer than what has been put on the table.
