BUDGET READING

Parliamentarians to meet on Thursday for the budget reading

Parliamentarians will be meeting in Belmopan on Thursday morning for the budget reading.  There was a big rally in the making where the UDP Standard Bearers were gathering supporters to rally in solidarity with the Barrow Administration.  The UDP, however, came under heat considering that the BDF soldiers are being laid to rest this week.  In Cabinet meeting today it was decided that while the Budget Reading will continue as planned, the rally would be postponed. The Budget Reading is an annual sitting as the government approaches the end of its fiscal year.  The orders for Thursday’s sitting include the three papers to be laid on the table, namely, the draft estimates of revenue and expenditure for fiscal year 2020/2021; the Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute audited financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2019 and the International Business Companies Order 2020.  A motion for the renewal of the Ombudsman’s contract will also be tabled on Thursday.  The annual Budget Reading is where the Prime Minister presents the estimated budget for the upcoming fiscal year.  A full 2-day debate of the budget follows in two weeks in Belmopan.
