Here's the full text of Minister Gilbert Licudi's Budget speech:
Mr Speaker, both the Chief Minister and the father of the House have spoken during their contributions of the excellent employment figures. We have record numbers employed. Record numbers of Gibraltarians employed. Consistently low records of Gibraltarian unemployment.
Here's the full text of the Deputy Chief Minister's Budget speech:
In February 1999 I was elected to this House for the first time. It was then still the Gibraltar House of Assembly.
