    Gifts made by ministers and parliamentary secretaries were the subject of a parliamentary question by the Opposition.

    Opposition MP Karol Aquilina asked whether Ministers and Parliamentary Secretaries are entitled to bill their ministry for gifts when they’re invited to weddings or special occasions in a parliamentary question posed to Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.

    Muscat replied with a curt “no”.
