Farewell Drinks for Provincial Counselor Cost 10,000 Euros

Recently the entire provincial council of Northern Holland resigned after the province lost tens of millions of Euros in one of the Iceland bank failures. The province will now be spending 10,000 euros for the farewell party of one its counselors Ton Hooijmaijers (Liberal Party). The Socialist Party says that at present this is legal, but they plan to introduce a new rule which would limit the cost of such parties to 1,000 euros.
