Opposition questions Salary Relief Grant figures


    The Opposition UNC is calling on the Finance Minister to explain what he says is a discrepancy over the amount of money paid out under the Salary Relief Grant.

    At a media conference today, MP Saddam Hosein said the figure given by the Finance Minister in the Budget is almost $100m less than the figure listed in the books listing recurrent expenditure.

    Mr Hosein is now calling for an answer to this, as well as the latest figures on how many persons received the grant.
