Audley Shaw to table supplementary estimates in Parliament

The First Supplementary Estimates for the 2017/18 Financial Year will be tabled Tuesday afternoon in the House of Representatives by Finance Minister Audley Shaw.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness told the House of Representatives recently that funds will be made available in the revised estimates to carry out repair work to the island's road network which has been severely damaged following several weeks of rain in October and November.

The Prime Minister also revealed in November that funds will be made available in the estimates to assist police personnel who are brought before the courts by the oversight agency, INDECOM.

He was speaking at the Jamaica Labour Party's annual conference inside the National Arena in Kingston.
