VVD and D66 demand the Minister of Agriculture to return the nitrogen data
According to him, this can also be done after a few years in areas where nature has already been well restored, Trouw reports.
Nitrogen broker Johann Remix wrote in his advice to commit to 2030 in order to halve emissions, with two measurement moments in 2025 and 2028. The date can then be changed if necessary.
“Nature must recover”
According to Adema, the remix “pretty much set the deadline.”
“The condition remains that nature must recover. It must be clear: We are on the right track, but we haven’t done it yet. You don’t have to be dogmatic – it could also be in 2032, 2033 or 2034,” Remix says. That’s the nuance.”
Fury in the D66
But these statements angered the parties of the coalition D66 and VVD. Both sides believe that the minister should retract his statements. Adema made the comments last night at a meeting with farmers in Drachten.
Member of Parliament Gerd de Groot of the D66 has nothing good to say about it. He says on Twitter: “Adima should retract his words. Talking to farmers makes no sense.” VVD MP’s Thom van Campen also says Adema should take his words back.
Pronunciation of Hoekstra
In August, CDA leader and Foreign Affairs Minister Wopke Hoekstra argued in an interview with AD for the “resumption” of the process on nitrogen emissions. It was agreed in the coalition agreement to cut it in half by 2030. That year suddenly turned out to be “unholy” for the CDA. There was a lot of criticism about this.
