Executive Statement 13 January 2011 - Extension of deadline for Draft Budget Consultation
The Executive has agreed to extend the consultation period for the Draft Budget.
~ Thursday, 13 January 2011
The move will see the deadline move from 9 February to 16 February.
Ministers agreed to the extension given the Christmas break and the desire for individuals and interested groups to be afforded as much time as possible to consider the proposals. The Executive is aware of the challenging timescale that already existed for the formulation of a final Budget and have therefore agreed to schedule a special Executive meeting following the end of the consultation period. This meeting will focus entirely on budgetary matters.
