Next month, the second stage of the Council of Ministers’ spending plans for 2017 to 2019 – the Medium Term Financial Plan addition – will be lodged with the States, before it is debated later in the year.
On Monday, Treasury Minister Alan Maclean said that the plan was ‘largely complete’ and he expected it to be lodged on 30 June, as targeted, with a copy to be made available to the Corporate Services Scrutiny Panel, which is responsible for analysing it, shortly beforehand.
But at the hearing, the minister also admitted that several reports which could influence the final shape of the plan were still outstanding and not due to be completed until early next month.
