Finland: Only moderate increases to funding of basic activities of internal security authorities

NordenBladet — The government report on the General Government Fiscal Plan was submitted to Parliament at the government plenary session on 12 May 2021. The appropriation for the administrative branch of the Ministry of the Interior will remain under EUR 1.5 billion per year during the 2022–2025 spending limits period.

The spending limits decision takes into account the increases to police and the Border Guard for the higher rents related to Senate Properties’ premises projects, in accordance with the government decision last year. In addition, increases were granted to the police, the Border Guard and the Finnish Immigration Service for the national implementation of the provisions on the interoperability of information systems, and to the police, the Border Guard and rescue services for the national implementation of the Galileo satellite navigation system’s public regulated service.

An appropriation of EUR 17.6 million is proposed for equipping the new premises of the Finnish Security Intelligence Service. The increase is related to the lease agreement signed last year by the Finnish Security Intelligence Service, which will move to the new premises once they have been completed.
