The budget was passed 75-0.
This will be the fifth consecutive budget by the O’Neill led Government and the last budget in this term of Parliament before the national election.
The 2017 Budget is set at K12,965.4 million against a revenue envelope of K11,088.8 million.
This comprise of K9,182.2 million in tax revenue, K1,045.3 million in grants and K1,245.7 million from other sources of revenue.
However, Opposition Leader Don Polye debated and termed the 2017 budget as a scam to defraud the people of this nation.
