We have negotiated an increase of DKr2 billion ($236 million) in contributions to the health service in 2002 with the county councils," says Danish health minister Arne Rolighed, of the Social Democratic Party. Speaking in response to claims by the political chairperson of the Left Party, Ulla Tcentrnaes, that her party would grant an extra DKr1.5 billion to the health service, he said that her statements were misleading. "The fact is, that since 1993 some DKr1.5 billion has been pumped into the health service every year, taking this to a total of DKr11billion," he added.
