Today is the third day of the committee stage debate on the third reading of the budget.
Today expenditure heads of Higher Education, Industry and Commercial Affairs and Traditional Industries and Small Enterprises Development Ministries will be taken up for debate.
Yesterday Education Ministry expenditure heads were passed without amendment.
Meanwhile in allocating time for speeches in Parliament a contentious situation occurred in the opposition.
That was when the chair invited MP Ranjith Maddumabandara to deliver his speech.
