CHILDREN and the education sector would be the most affected by the 2019-2020 budget because of the FijiFirst Government’s excessive spending spree and “champagne lifestyle on a beer budget”.

This was the word from National Federation Party parliamentarian Lenora Qereqeretabua in the House this week.

“The NFP warned last year when FijiFirst was traipsing around the country handing out freebies that nothing was free and that all of us would end up paying sooner rather than later,” she said.
