(Demerara Waves) – Friday February 17, 2012

An eight-hour parliamentary session to consider two financial papers on Thursday has left the government disappointed as the opposition used its majority to disrupt the now annual routine passage of the papers through the House.

The government brought two supplementary financial papers to the House to the tune of some GUY$3.5B (Financial Paper No.8) and GUY$2.24B (Financial Paper No.7) but ended the day with only some GUY$2.16B of the latter approved and the other sent back.  Most of the sitting was spent going through the 13 items and sub-units of Financial Paper No.7.  [Read more]
