Seven mps from the Left calls on the government to immediately drop the requirement for six-day stay for foreigners who want to travel to Denmark.
in an open letter, which is sent to the minister of finance, minister of justice and the economic and business affairs.
In the letter expressed concern for the consequences, as the requirement will be for the Danish tourism.
- the Government's six-day-rule means that many foreign tourists and other guests to opt-out of Denmark as a destination in the summer.
- This might cost expensive for an industry that every year is getting billions of dollars back home to Denmark, which employs almost 170.000 persons, says in the letter.
At a consultation the other day could the business and enterprise minister and the minister of justice didn't respond to, what the justification is to establish and maintain seksdagesreglen.
said Martin Geertsen, the functioning of the political rapporteur for the Left and the primary shipper on the open letter.
If the government insists seksdagesreglen, expect the Left, that the government presented a plan for how the tourism industry has to cope.
Leif Lahn (S), functioning of the political rapporteur for the Social democrats, writes in a commentary that the Party recognises the pressure that coronakrisen have to put on the jobs and the tourism industry.
- But when we have seksdagesreglen, it is from a precautionary approach, that we want to avoid, that the infection flares up again in Denmark, writes Leif Lahn.
The explanation buy Martin Geertsen not.
- I think it is an illogical argument. Actually, there is talk of a grænsebom.
- I can't see that there would be a problem to invite people to Denmark to spend the night in four days from countries that have a low smittetryk like the Danish, says Martin Geertsen.
He points out that Denmark is the only country in the EU, which has a claim as the seksdagesreglen.
