A broad majority puts turbo on compensation for mink breeders

A broad majority agrees that mink breeders must be able to receive compensation sooner than initially agreed.

With a new agreement, the mink breeders who lost their herds during the corona epidemic will be offered compensation by mid-2024 at the latest instead of at the end of 2027.

This is what the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries writes in a press release.

Behind the agreement are the government, SF, Liberal Alliance and De Radikale.

The government has had a majority in favor of the agreement alone, but has from the start set out to enter into negotiations with the other parties in the Folketing.

– I am incredibly happy that a broad collection of the parties in the Folketing have today given their hand that the payments of compensation to the mink breeders must now be speeded up, says Food Minister Jacob Jensen (V) in a press release.

Wednesday’s agreement is a supplementary agreement to the original agreement on compensation for mink breeders, which was concluded in 2021.

The supplementary agreement therefore contains a fast track scheme, which means that the mink breeders can be paid compensation much earlier than originally planned.

If the growers choose the government’s turbo scheme, it is potentially three years earlier than previously expected and with a larger advance, but in return they give up the right to complain.

This is done by the compensation being paid according to standardized rates.

If they choose individual case management, their cases will potentially drag on until 2027 at the latest, seven years after the minks were put down.
