What happens if Budget 2021 doesn’t receive the votes it needs to be passed in Parliament? BFM explores this question with constitutional lawyer Lim Wei Jiet.
BFM also gets into the parliamentary process of passing a Budget bill, what happens if the Budget doesn’t get the votes it needs at the third reading, the options after that, and whether a failure to pass the Budget means that government salaries get stalled.
