Solomons Finance Minister to table budget as parliament resumes today

Solomon Islands National Parliament is expected to resume today following its adjournment for the Easter long weekend.

It is expected that the Minister of Finance, Snyder Rini (pictured), will present the 2008 budget in today's session.

Parliament members will be allowed time to study the contents of the draft budget before they comment on it.

It is expected that unless there were difficulties which needs to be amended in certain areas, the budget should be passed before end of the week.

Meanwhile, Government has been spending money from the consolidated fund under a parliamentary resolution to meet its services for the first three months of the year, since January, in the absence of the passing of the 2008 Budget.
