Merging the provinces of North Holland, Utrecht and Flevoland can yield annual savings of up to 70 million euros. This is stated in the draft proposal for the reclassification, that Minister Ronald Plasterk of Interior Affairs has published on Monday.

Ambulance personnel will expand their actions in the next few weeks with work interruptions. On Wednesday employees will stop working for two hours from 12.30pm in Almere and Lelystad, in the province in Flevoland.
The twelve Dutch provinces are upset about the plans to merge them into five ‘country parts’. The government wants to combine the provinces to make sure they can also fulfill their administrative tasks in the future.
