Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre’s (AP) government wants to give the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority an extra NOK 20 million in funding.
The Solberg government proposed an increase of NOK 5 million, while the Støre government wants to add an additional NOK 20 million to that, Frifagbevegelse reports.
That means that the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority could receive a total of NOK 25 million more for supervisory activities next year. The goal is to reverse a negative trend of fewer and fewer inspections.
“We have seen a development where there have been fewer and fewer inspections per number of businesses,” the AP’s parliamentary leader Rigmor Aasrud stated.
