Opposition proposes major tax cut

The opposition is calling for five billion kroner in tax cuts in the 2014 budget as a way to stimulate job growth.

Venstre, parliament’s largest party, said it would find room in the 697 billion kroner budget for the cuts through reforms and by limiting the growth of the public sector.

In addition, Venstre predicted that up to a billion kroner could be found by requiring local councils to privatise more services.
