Grants are not money for MPs, says Planning Secretary

She made this comment during the 2017 National Budget Press Lock-up on Monday when questioned about how her department deals with MPs writing their names on the vehicles, than stating district development grant.

“The purpose of DSIP is to ensure that each sector in the district is brought up to a stage we want to see them, like improvement to education, health, infrastructure and law and justice,” Harry said.     

The Secretary said, it is common for MPs to print their names on vehicles and her department will need to educate MPs that these are public funds.
