Animal party asks many ministerial questions

The animal welfare party PvdD has asked the farm ministry so many questions that it has been forced to take on two new officials to deal with them, the AD reports on Monday.

The paper says the party has asked 162 questions since winning two seats in parliament last year, at a cost of €342,000.
The Socialist Party is still top of the list, having asked 597 ministerial questions since last November’s election.
