Opposition Senator, Peter Bunting, says Tuesday’s defence of House Speaker Juliet Holness by Finance Minister, Dr. Nigel Clarke, was cloaked in self interest.

Mr. Bunting made the comment as he contributed to a debate in the Senate on the Appropriations Bill.

Mr. Bunting says its curoius that the two reports from the Auditor General that were the subject of the tabling controversy, concern two areas of government that fall under the Finance Ministry.
