First letters commenting on draft budgets 2023

The Netherlands Court of Audit sends letters every year with points for attention that parliament can consider in its debate of the ministers’ draft budgets.

The first 2 letters, on the draft budgets of the Minister of Finance and the Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, were sent to the House of Representatives and published on 28 September 2022. Good budgets are the building blocks of good accounts. Those accounts are in turn the starting point for the next year’s budget. Letters concerning the draft budgets of the other ministers will follow on 6 October 2022.

The letters are only available in Dutch.
