A storm in a tea-cup was how the Acting Prime Minister described the Opposition’s tactics yesterday.

A war of words broke out on several points, one being the budgetary estimates.

The Opposition contended that estimates were provided several days after the National Budget was presented.

However, Acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said details of the estimates were provided when the Budget was provided last month.

At one stage on a point of order the debate centred on the qualified lawyers in Parliament Tourism Minister Faiyaz Koya and Mr Sayed-Khaiyum on the Government side.

From the Opposition side Semesa Karavaki, Niko Nawaikula and Mosese Bulitavu of SODELPA led the charge.
