The opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) says it will be giving its formal response this week to the 2016 budgetary estimates put forward in parliament recently by the Unity Labour Party government.

The NDP said in a press release that all of the party’s parliamentarians, who boycotted last week’s presentation, will make formal responses to the budget and put forward counter proposals as part of their growth agenda.

The special People’s Public Budgetary Session will take place today and tomorrow from 4:45pm at Frenches House in Kingstown.

The sessions on both days will be chaired by Mr. Monty Maule, a businessman, lay preacher and former Speaker of the House of Parliament.
