Danish 2006 budget accepted by government

The Danish government said on Monday it had reached a deal for next year's budget of 467.5 billion kroner (Ђ63 billion; US$75 billion), focusing mainly on welfare expenses, research and education but also earmarking 150 million kroner (Ђ20 million, US$24 million) to combat terror.

How to use the anti-terror money will be decided later, according to the deal, the AP reports.

Since Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen formed a government in 2001, his Cabinet has made budget deals with the Danish People's Party - known for its tough stance on crime and immigration and defense of the welfare state - drawing the ire of the main opposition group, the Social Democrats.

In the budget talks, the Danish People's Party succeeded in getting an extra 500 million kroner (Ђ67 million, US$80 million) put aside to improve state-funded services for the elderly.

The deal also included an additional 300 million kroner (Ђ40 million; US$48 million) for scientific research and 680 million kroner (Ђ91 million; US$109 million) for schools. A.M.
