State Secretary of Social Affairs, Jetta Klijnsma, is going to talk with telecom companies about the increasing number of young people who get into debt by expensive telephone subscriptions. She will ask the companies to ensure that customers do not subscribe to a plan that is beyond their capacity.
Klijnsma has said that Wednesday in the House. She responded to a plea of SP MP Sadet Karabulut. Karabulut wants that phone service providers will fall under the Financial Supervision Act. They would then be obliged to assess the creditworthiness of subscribers.
