23 September 2015: Fiji Village – Finance Minister provides breakdown of Head 50 in the budget
Transcript of NFP Leader, Hon Prof Biman Prasad’s interview (please check against audio):
“Committee reports to the Parliament, I think its inappropriate for any Minister to comment on the work of the Public Accounts Committee and I’m saddened that the Attorney General continues to do that. He’s done that in the past and during that time I’ve also said very clearly that the Committee will present its report to Parliament and Minister’s and anyone else will have the opportunity then to comment on those reports.”
The Finance Minister also gave to the media the Head 50 Trend Analysis from 2000-2014 as the Public Accounts Committee had tasked staff of the Ministry of Finance to do. The Head 50 Trend Analysis is available for viewing and downloading here.
