Government representatives also still converting euro to guilder

As the EU-surveys show, the Dutch people are still converting sums of money back to guilders. Even our prime minister Balkenende does so in reply to questions of parliament: "Mind you, this sum of 110 million euro still represents 240 million guilders!". Previously our former Member of euro-parliament (now Minister of Transport) Karla Peys repeatedly converted during a debate in parliament to convince the MPs.
