Earlier this year, the Court of Audit recommended that the level of this so-called B component of the benefit be audited every five years. Prime Minister Rutte did not feel like this, but D66 is not satisfied with that. On Wednesday evening, when discussing the King’s budget, Member of Parliament Joost Sneller wants to hear how the House wish is being implemented.
The king’s allowance was established in 1970. Since then, things have been added but also disappeared that have to be paid from the budget for personnel and equipment. As a result, it is not clear whether the king has money left or should devote it. “It is important that this is looked at,” says Sneller.
