Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller is to make her contribution to the Budget debate this afternoon.

The sitting at Gordon House was scheduled to begin at 2 o’clock.

Simpson Miller will be the third speaker in the debate.

She is expected to discuss the policies and programmes being funded by the 2016/2017 National Budget.

Already, the opposition has ripped into the government’s plans for the financial year.

On Tuesday, opposition spokesman on finance, Dr Peter Phillips, labelled the budget a sham and said the projections in it were not credible.
