Askholt was first informed last Friday about a reversal in a debate about whether a jet should be approved to upgrade air ambulance capabilities.

"I believe the matter should have been dealt with both in the emergency preparedness council in Longyearbyen and possibly the Interdepartmental Polar Commission," she said. "It is regrettable that there has not been a proper process for what has happened in Longyearbyen during the past year. There are interests in Svalbard that must be heard on this issue before a final decision is made."

On Thursday, a day after Svalbardposten went to press, there was a meeting of the emergency preparedness council. Askholt said she also plans to take up the matter with the Norwegian Ministry of Justice and Public Security.
