Parliament will spend nearly Rs.2.9 billion in 2018 when compared to Rs.2.05 billion allocated for this year, according to the Appropriation Bill presented in the House on Monday.

The Bill states that Parliament is one spending unit for which the capital expenditure allocation has been increased.

The funds allocated to the Leader of the House for 2018 has been increased to Rs.41.1 million from the Rs.36.2 million allocated for 2017 while the allocation for the Chief Government Whip has been increased to Rs.85.5 million from the Rs.42.04 million allocated this year.
