Minister of Finance Ravi Karunanayake said that money collected from the increase in traffic fines are expected to be used for such areas as the health sector.

Addressing a media conference held in Colombo this morning, minister Karunanayake said that money collected from such traffic fines will never be added to government revenue.

Meanwhile, Provincial Council Chief Ministers charged that lesser allocations have been made for Provincial Councils by this budget.

However media reported that a reimbursement was agreed upon following a recent discussion between the President and Provincial Chief Ministers.

The minister rejected such media reports during a press briefing this morning and said that the curtailed allocations will not be repaid to provincial councils.
