The Budget is [finally] coming!

Patrick Faber

There will be a special meeting of the Cabinet in Belmopan this Friday, where members will get the first look at the 2018-2019 General Revenue and Appropriation Bill, also known as the budget.  It is then scheduled to go before the House of Representatives next week, March ninth. In confirming the announcement, Deputy Prime Minister Patrick Faber reiterated that nobody, including himself and his fellow ministers, have seen the bill although they have crafted their proposals for inclusion.

“There is a special meeting of the cabinet scheduled for tomorrow morning, Friday. So we are able to see the budget figures, I can only speak to you about what is involved in my ministry because I have been creating the submission for our ministry. But we haven’t seen the whole picture yet. That will happen with a special meeting of the cabinet tomorrow morning and then the Prime Minister will present; I think it is on Friday, the ninth of March.”
