“The appropriation committee is ready now to start receiving this report and we have one week to conclude this assignment, so this committee will sit from 10 in the morning till six in the evening.
“We will conclude this sitting on Monday 29 of February. We will look through the report thoroughly to ensure that all errors, duplications and paddings contained in that budget will be detected by us.

“We want to assure you that despite the controversies surrounding this budget we are going to produce a budget that will benefit this country,” he said.
