Supplementary Estimate issue will ruin New Year for 150,000 Featured

Secretary to the Ministry of Finance S.R. Attygalle says that Government’s withdrawal of the proposed amendment to the Vote on Account (VoA) to raise additional funds will inconvenience over 150,000 people including contractors, sub contractors, suppliers and family members of the employees.

The Government abandoned a move in Parliament to amend the Vote on Account (VOA) to obtain an additional sum of Rs. 367 billion for Government expenses, as well as increase the limit of borrowing, after the UNP-led opposition refused to support the move.
