Appropriation Bill 2019: Second and Subsequent Stages
I thank the Minister of State for outlining in detail the purpose of the Appropriation Bill. As he indicated, if the Bill is not passed before the end of the year there would be no authority to spend in 2020. While we may disagree with the Government and its partners in government about how resources are spent and directed, and the policy that underpins the spending, given the reasons for the Bill we will facilitate its passage through this House.
