Government and Opposition during the 98th Sitting of the National Assembly today

On an oral vote in the National Assembly, the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) attempted to block additional funds for the Bertram Collins College of the Public Service. However, a vote was called and the decision was reversed by a government majority 33 votes to 29 votes.

The Coalition Government had spent $112.5M on upgrading old GuySuCo buildings at Ogle to house the college and sought $19.5M more for the project. However, the PPP objected to the project that is intended to help train and professionalise the public service.
