Rowley to reply to budget today
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley gives his reply to the 2013-2014 national budget from 10 a.m. today in the House of Representatives, Tower D, International Waterfront Centre, Port of Spain.
The $61.3 billion budget was presented by Finance Minister Larry Howai on Monday. Rowley has the same length of time—two hours—as it took for Howai to give his budget presentation.
After Rowley, it is expected that Leader of Government Business Dr Roodal Moonilal would speak.
The debate is expected to continue until late tonight. It would resume after that on Monday.
As is customary on the day of the Opposition Leader’s reply, the People’s National Movement (PNM) also holds a meeting at Piggott Corner in Belmont tonight.
