Marijnen (24 July 1963 - 14 April 1965) was the name given to a Dutch cabinet consisting of ministers from KVP, VVD, ARP and CHU, the same parties that formed the previous cabinet De Quay and can be seen as a continuation of that cabinet.
The natural gas reserves, recently found in Slochteren were a considerable boost for the economy. This, combined with labour shortage led to a rise in wages and the attraction of foreign workers. Despite this being the second cabinet without socialist PvdA, the building up of a welfare state, that was started after World War II, continued with the introduction of minimum wages in 1964 and the national health service (ziekenfondswet).
