Executive Council met today, Tuesday 19 January 2016, with one item on the agenda.  Council supported the First Supplementary Appropriation Bill 2015/16 and agreed that it be introduced as Government Business at the forthcoming meeting of Legislative Council on Friday 12 February 2016.  A Supplementary Appropriation Bill is required under the Constitution to provide for Government expenditure not previously authorised in the Appropriation Ordinance for the Financial Year in question.

Executive Council, on behalf of Legislative Council, would also like to pay tribute to everyone involved in the safe and efficient evacuation of medevac patients over the weekend – a true example of the excellent teamwork and spirit on St Helena.
