Italy government's internal budget debate is intense but manageable: minister

ROME (Reuters) - Internal debate between Italy’s two ruling parties and the economy minister over the government’s proposed 2019 budget is intense but not out of hand, a junior minister, Armando Siri, said on Thursday.

The junior minister for infrastructure made the comment in a radio interview after days of market turmoil over the government’s plan for a big expansion of the budget deficit despite initial objections from the economy minister.
