Portfolio Committees will be holding their postponed Pre-Budget Consultations with the Ministries they supervise over a three-day period, starting Monday 2nd November, continuing on Tuesday 3rd November and ending on Wednesday 4th November [see tables below].  They will use these consultations to get information from the Ministries, their parastatals and stakeholders as to their needs and expectations from the National Budget for next year.

The meetings are open to the public for purposes of observation only [see, however, the note at the end of this bulletin on Submissions from Members of the Public].  Physical access to such meetings is still limited, as explained in the following notice from Parliament:

“Please note that in light of the COVID 19 pandemic, access to Committee meetings that are open to the public is still limited in order for us to comply with World Health Organisation Guidelines on COVID 19 as advised by the Ministry of Health and Child Care. Our Public Relations Department will assist you in participating in our open meetings.

We are sorry for any inconveniences caused by the current restrictions due to COVID 19.”
