Budget coming in June

Government today revealed that the highly-anticipated 2015-2016 Budget will be delivered in Parliament on Monday, June 15.

Leader of the House John Boyce made the announcement at the end of today’s debate on the Customs Amendment Act.

Next month’s presentation by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler comes against the backdrop of a just concluded International Monetary Fund Article 1V consultation on the island.

At the end of the process, the IMF has called on the Freundel Stuart administration to press ahead with needed economic reforms and to reduce its high public sector wage bill, which is said to be in the region of a billion Barbados dollars.

    He’s clever is Mr Sinckler. By holding the budget half way through the year he can say we were on target for the first half of the year & all the DLP sheep will say what a good job the government is doing.

    Rise & shine sheeple, it’s time to smell the coffee!!!!
