AMMAN —AlGhad— The House of Representatives agreed to launch the 2018 Budget Bill Debates on Sunday.

The Committee on Financial Affairs has not decided on the Bill yet, MP Mousa Wahsh said, despite Speaker Atef Tarawneh’s attempts to pressure the Committee and House into passing the Bill before debating it, he claimed, stirring controversy under the Dome.

Meanwhile, the Committee estimated the allocations necessary to support citizen compensation for the de-subsidisation of bread and consumer production at JOD74.7 million and JOD40.3 million.
