13 May 2020 klockan 15.22

Temporary changes to press subsidies have been proposed to reduce economic consequences for the media in connection with the outbreak of the coronavirus. The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government's proposal.

The proposal means that the Riksdag approves the Government's proposal that operational support to newspaper companies that has been decided for 2020 can be paid out in advance and that the requirement that a daily newspaper should have a certain proportion of editorial content of their own will be temporarily removed during a period in 2020.
