When the year draws to an end, expire Passagerpulsens appropriation. The organization has been critical, showing the note.
For the new year expires Passagerpulsens recent appropriation of nearly seven millions of annual dollars, and the government with transport minister Benny Engelbrecht (S) in the tip is not at present a priority to continue it.
Passagerpulsen was created in 2014 as an independent and national passagerorganisation, which had to fulfil the travellers ' interests. The purview of the Consumer council Think.
A memo from the Transport ministry, according to Politiken, that you have found Passagerpulsen critical, and that their work is assessed 'in the worst case to oppose, to more danes voters to use public transport'.
"To make us responsible for the collective's bad image is very hard to take seriously."
"There is probably something about it when they think we can be too critical. However, when the Consumer council Think at all has thrown himself in to work with the public traffic, it is because we believe, collective traffic is a good thing," says Vagn Jelsøe.
He also believes the premise is completely wrong.
"It is strange to say, to detract from the collective traffic by pointing out the error. On the contrary it is the prerequisite to make it better," sounds it.
He calls it "deeply strange" to negotiate a bevillingsforlængelse, after the appropriation has expired.
"This has been an incomprehensible flow, for we had a good meeting with the new minister in august and also with the ministry in september, but since has gone a wall down in communication."
"We have written letters in november and december, and we have called to get answers, but we did not. It is not properly in relation to our planning, but not in relation to our employees, as well know, that the authorization expires," says.
the minister of Transport does not show up to the interview on the matter, but the ministry informs that it has 'been known that Passagerpulsens grant was time-limited, and therefore, it is not as a result of a new decision, to Passagerpulsens appropriation expires at the end of the year'.
Passagerpulsens inquiries are to be answered in the beginning of January, sounds.
Wednesday was Passagerpulsens six employees terminated, informs Vagn Jelsøe.
the Work continues, however, in January 2020, since there is a residue money back.
