Winners and losers in the Budget
The Ministry of Youth, Families and Sports walked away the biggest winner from the 2012/13 Budget, up more than 20 percent.
From last year's $62 million, expenditure for this Ministry is estimated at $75.3 million for the coming fiscal year driven largely by a 45 percent increase in spending on financial assistance.
Next in line is National Security: its budget rises from $94.3 million to $108.9 million, up 16 percent.
Health gets a boost from $172 million to $191 million, or 11 percent, and the Ministry of the Environment, Planning and Infrastructure also rises, from $12.2 million to $15.7 million just under 11 percent.
Subsequent increases are:
• Public Works: from $62.6 million to $68 million, or nine percent;
• Justice: from $54.2 million to $58.5 million, or eight percent;
• Education: from $128.2 million to $134 million, or five percent;
• Transport: from $76.2 million to $79.5 million, or four percent;
• Economy, Trade and Industry: from $29.8 million to $30.5 million, or three percent;
• Business Development and Tourism also saw an incremental rise, from $1.002 million to $1.005 million.
Moving in the opposite direction, Finance took the biggest hit.
