MPs want more cars

November 22, 2017, 9:31pm

Finance minister Calle Schlettwein, has refused calls by members of parliament to have treasury bankroll the purchase and provision of additional vehicles for their use.

Schlettwein said this is a wanton wastage of financial resources in these economically crippling times.

The minister was responding in parliament to a number of questions and criticism submitted to him by members of the August house soon after the reading of the medium term budget policy statement.
