During the Second World War 1940-1945, Norwegian ministries were working under the legal leadership of Johan Nygaardsvold’s Government in exile in London, and under Nazi Germany’s occupation authorities in Oslo (marked NS).
On 3 January 1941, the Norwegian State Auditing Office in London was placed under the responsibility of a government minister. On 8 May 1945, this arrangement was abolished.
