Governor General Dame Sandra Mason has announced that Parliament was officially prorogued on Saturday, August 8, 2020.
The announcement was made in a notice published in the Official Gazette and dated August 7, 2020.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley announced last month that Parliament would be prorogued on August 8, 2020 and a new session will start on September 15, 2020.
“The Government has determined that it is necessary that we take fresh guard. The Parliament of Barbados will be prorogued on the 8th of August, 2020, with us resuming in a new session on the 15th of September with a new Throne Speech and with a new direction as to where we must go in order to meet these extraordinarily different circumstances from the original Throne Speech of two years ago,” Mottley said.
