PRESENTATION OF THE 2016 ANNUAL BUDGET REVIEW AND 2017 ECONOMIC OUTLOOK STATEMENT

THE ACTING PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE (HON. SEN. CHIEF CHARUMBIRA): I have to inform the Senate that the Hon. Minister of Finance and Economic Development will at 1445 hours, today, present the 2016 Annual Budget Review and the 2017 Economic Outlook Statement in the National Assembly Chamber.  The Presiding Officers and the President of the Senate’s panel will proceed to the National Assembly Chamber and Senators will view the presentation from the television screens in the Senate Chamber. 

          Let me advise Hon. Senators that we are adjourning the House, those that would want to sit and watch from the screens are free to do so.  Some may want to leave, so we do not want to adjourn after the Statement, there may be only four people left here, it means there will be no quorum and we will have to come back tomorrow, that is the technicality.  So, whilst we still have the quorum, we will adjourn and then we can sit and watch from the television screens. There is also space in the Speaker’s Gallery for those who may want to follow the presentation from there. 

          On the motion of THE MINISTER OF STATE FOR LIAISING ON PSYCHOMOTOR ACTIVITIVES IN EDUCATION (HON. HUNGWE), the Senate adjourned at Twenty Minutes to Three o’clock p.m. until Tuesday, 25th July, 2017.
