The Netherlands cabinet Van Agt-2 (1981-1982) was a coalition between the christian democrats (CDA), the labour party (PVDA) and the left-wing liberals D66. Many incidents made a healthy coalition impossible. Prime minister Dries van Agt had lots of trouble with the vice-prime minister Joop den Uyl of the labour party. Den Uyl tried to create employment as minister of social affairs. Plans to reform the health insurance act was met with a huge resistance from the left-wing. The cabinet fell because the christian democrats wanted a cut in government spending, while the labour party was much opposed to this.
