  • 18 Mar 2014 in National Assembly: He did, but what I am saying hon. Temporary Deputy Speaker, is that the budget-making process kicks off around 30th August. That is the time the Treasury circulars for making budgets are sent to the Ministries. They have all the time up to around February when they send these documents to us and we have only three or four weeks when these documents are brought before the Budget and Appropriations Committee. view
  • 18 Mar 2014 in National Assembly: Yes, but I am saying that this is an area, as a House, if this Committee has to do justice to this document, we need to do something. view
