By Aaron Humes: Official notice has been sent of a meeting of the House of Representatives next Friday, February 4.

One of the expected items on its agenda will be another supplementary allocation to fund, in part, the activities of the Ministry of Health as it continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. That part of the allocation is costed at $16 million.

On Wednesday, reporters asked Prime Minister and Minister of Finance John Briceno whether former Minister Michel Chebat left the ministry “broke” through allegedly blown budgets and misspent monies.

The Prime Minister judged that he had not: “… it’s a matter of what was necessary to do at that time, when you need more testing kits, when you need more medicines to fight the COVID, in your budget you are no approved the amount of monies to buy the medicine, then you have to do those things, so Chebat did not leave the ministry broke.”

But as it is the law, he added, the Government must obtain the support of the National Assembly for this supplemental allocation.
