The Finance Minister Mr Ofori Atta is scheduled to present the budget statement in Parliament on Wednesday November 17.
Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, had said Parliament would start the debate on the budget from Monday, November 22, and conclude on Friday, November 26, 2021.

We will insist on the details, show us the details so you don’t come and tell us.”
