10-Mar-23: 'Catalan budget passes with support of pro-independence and pro-union parties for first time in a decade'
The minority Esquerra Republicana Catalan government has secured some level of stability with the approval of the 2023 budget plan here in the parliament today. The spending plan passed with support from a mixture of pro-independence and pro-union parties for the first time in a decade. A minute's silence was held in Súria today, where three people lost their lives in a mining accident yesterday. The town is in the middle of two official days of mourning.
