Citizens must of course be able to have confidence that there will be looked after well on the money that is paid in tax.

Mette Frederiksen agrees that there is a need to deepen, but are not clear on whether she will summon the parties to negotiations.

- How we exactly do it, I would very much like to discuss. I understand that the public accounts committee has the same considerations to discuss matters that go on across the ministries, says Mette Frederiksen.
