Storting’s spontaneous question time In the oral question time, the representatives take up current affairs, preferably taken from the media. The Minister does not know what questions will be asked, and is, in a sense, unprepared. The Minister of State also does not have time to reflect, but must respond spontaneously. runs as usual, and is streamed on the Storting’s website.

– It is going as normal, confirms the press guard to VG.

A little after 10.30 the audience was told to leave the hall.
