Finance Committee in session

The House concluded debate on post-Ivan supplementary expenditures last night around 9.15. Minutes later, the 15 elected members went into Finance Committee to consider requests in detail.

The committee approved spending for items under Chief Secretary George McCarthy and discussed items under Leader of Government Business McKeeva Bush. However, by 1am there were only seven members left, so the vote on these items was adjourned until later this morning. Finance Committee was scheduled to resume at 9.30 today.
