Budget 2018 continued

From The House , 7:30 am on 17 June 2018

Budget 2018 was announced last month but MPs are still in the early stages of working through the process. 

After the budget is announced and debated in the House Ministers are required to turn up to Select Committees to justify their spending. 

It's part of Parliament's financial scrutiny cycle which looks at how money was spent and how money will be spent.

The House sat down with Minister for Women Julie Anne Genter and Gareth Hughes who is the chair of the Social Services and Community Committee, and the Acting Clerk of the committee Kelly Traynor to find out what they actually have to do.
