Tempers flared over the government’s decision to push through amendments to the Financial Administration and Audit Act, despite protests from the Opposition.

The amendments would postpone Jamaica’s aim to reduce Debt to GDP target to 60 per cent by two years.

Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke

Led by Dr. Phillips the Opposition today urged the government to delay the passing of the legislation.

This has been a fundamental pillar of Jamaica’s economic reform programme.

But the Finance Minister Dr. Nigel Clarke would have none of it and accused the PNP of wanting nothing but delays even as the need in the country is great. Dr. Clarke made it clear that the Holness led government was not going to delay the bill for nearly a month.

However, the Opposition Leader took serious issue with Minister Clarke’s statements.

Then Dr. Nigel Clarke fired back.
