Biodiesel proposal passed / News / The Foreigner

Biodiesel proposal passed. Stoltenberg gets his way, but not the end of the road. Early this morning, the Labour Party’s (Ap) proposal to levy tax on biodiesel was passed by a majority of just three votes. But with the resolution just a few hours old, the Opposition has already warned that the battle isn’t over, with Siv Jensen, leader of the Progress Party (FrP) claiming that Stoltenberg has already begun nailing his party’s political coffin shut.

Early this morning, the Labour Party’s (Ap) proposal to levy tax on biodiesel was passed by a majority of just three votes.

But with the resolution just a few hours old, the Opposition has already warned that the battle isn’t over, with Siv Jensen, leader of the Progress Party (FrP) claiming that Stoltenberg has already begun nailing his party’s political coffin shut.

Uniol – one of the manufacturers of biofuel – says today that they may have no choice but to sack their entire workforce, as the new tax would make biodiesel more expensive to produce.
