CDA MP Derk Boswijk read with increasing surprise the alternative proposal from Finance that was recently sent to the House. It stated that the nitrogen targets could also be achieved for approximately 10 billion euros, while the cabinet has reserved more than 24 billion euros for this. Main difference: almost all farmers around Natura 2000 areas would have to give way in the plan of Finance, while in the final plan the pain is more divided and farmers also get the opportunity to innovate. Boswijk calls it ‘strange’ that the Ministry of Finance ‘spent energy’ in a scenario that the vast majority of the House of Representatives does not like.
