From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ulla Tørnæs in February 2008

Ulla Pedersen Tørnæs (born 4 September 1962) is a Danish politician and the present Minister for Development Cooperation of Denmark. She is a member of the Liberal Party and, since 1994, of the Danish parliament (Folketing). She served as Minister for Education in the Cabinet of Anders Fogh Rasmussen I (2001–2005) and switched to her current position when the Cabinet of Anders Fogh Rasmussen II was appointed on 18 February 2005.

She is the daughter of former minister Laurits Tørnæs and Katty Tørnæs.

Tørnæs was in the news on 25 February 2005 when it became known that her husband, Jørgen Tørnæs, had illegally employed a Latvian supervisor on one of his pig farms without the required residence and work permits. She was not forced to resign as minister because there was no proof she knew the supervisor was illegally employed.
