The Center Party member Geir Pollestad is not impressed by the contents of the Government’s stimulus package against unemployment. He demands more answers from the Secretary of the Treasury Siv Jensen.

– I am far from satisfied, the head of Parliament’s industry committee. says

– It looks like quite ordinary budget items placed and given the name “package of measures”, adds Pollestad. He believes that  the original stimulus package against unemployment weathered got whittled down during the budget process.

In the Ministry of Finance they have been creative and engineered a list of measures that is far too little to be directed towards projects in the areas of the country with the largest rise in unemployment, he says.
