Minister of Housing [Mr. Ali]: Mr. Speaker, I wish to first of all congratulate the Hon. Dr.Ashni Singh and his competent staff for preparing a budget that is realistic - one that speaks to the issues facing our population, and one that seeks to bring balance in terms of income distribution and balance in terms of the distribution of the national wealth. For this, all of us must congratulate the Minister of Finance. There are lots of statements that were made prior to the commencement of these debates today. The Hon. Carl Greenidge led those controversial statements in the...

Budget Speech - Mr Veersamy Ramaya—2014

Hits: 1953

Published Date: 04 Sep, 2014 | Speech delivered at: 72nd Sitting- Tenth Parliament

Dr. Ramayya: I was fortunate to be saved from some three hours or more of the same from the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) cabal... Mr. Speaker: One second, Dr. Ramayya. We are in the House, so “the Hon. Members from the Government side” would substitute for the word “cabal”. Dr. Ramayya: The Alliance For Change (AFC) made the right decision in boycotting the fantasy speech by the Minister on Monday last. After studying Budget 2014, there is one theme that is very clear to me. The needs of the majority of Guyanese would...

Budget Sppech - Dr Frank Anthony—2014

Published Date: 04 Sep, 2014 | Speech delivered at: 72nd Sitting- Tenth Parliament

Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport [Dr. Anthony]: Thank you very much. Mr. Speaker and Hon. Members, I rise to make my contribution to Budget Debate 2014, under the caption, “A better Guyana, for all Guyanese.” Indeed listening to the Minister Ashni Singh, and subsequently reading the details of the presentation, it is clear that there is something for everyone, whether you are young or old; whether you are school age or middle age; whether you are from the hinterland or the coastland; whether you are employer or an employee, the budget has something for you.

Brigadier (Ret’d) Granger: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My first duty is to welcome my Colleague and Friend, Mr. Ernest Elliot, into this National Assembly. I am very happy to have him here. My only regret is, of course, the circumstances which led to his being selected to enter the National Assembly at this time. I must add that over the last few days we have had to reflect on the political culture in two particular events, one which led to the premature withdrawal of a promising young Colleague, Mr. Jaipaul Sharma, a solid, invaluable Member of our team,...

Ministry of Finance [Dr. Singh] (replying): Mr. Speaker, I hear the chants of “same old PPP” and I think, to myself, immediately that there really is no shame in being the “same old PPP”. The People’s Progressive Party is a party that has practised and believes in democracy and we will always do so. When it comes to a party who believes in democracy, we will be the “same old PPP”. The People’s Progressive Party has been a party that has always stood with the working people of Guyana. When...

Published Date: 08 Apr, 2014 | Speech delivered at: 78th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Mr. Hinds: Allow me to join in commending our colleague the Hon. Minister of Finance Dr. Ashni Singh and his team for Budget 2014. In his budget speech, in a businesslike manner, the Hon. Minister laid out an adequate outline of the state of the world and region today and he did so in six pages, positioning us in the world in which we live and in which we must find our way. He went on to review in some detail our accomplishments over the past year – he did not spend too much time on it - and in the...

Mr. Ramjattan: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. We are here gathered again in this august Assembly to debate the 2014 Budget. I must state, at the very inception, that it is necessary that the necessary protocols be announced, and that is largely that our Minister of Finance must be congratulated for managing, in a very difficult and challenging set of circumstances, nationally and internationally, for presenting the Budget, as he did. That does not, however, mean that there will not be criticisms, and constructive criticisms at that, from this side, from the Alliance For Change, that is going to endeavour...
