Parliament To Convene On the 1st October

The Parliament will convene on Tuesday, 1st October 2019, in order to consider amendments to the Standing Orders.

The 1967 Standing Orders have remained un-changed for 52 years, and the Speaker of the House has been adamant in declaring the guiding rules of the House of Representatives and the Senate to be antiquated in places. He has agitated for their amendment. The House will also present first readings of a number of Bills: TAPA, Trafficking in Persons Act, the Seventh Day Adventist Bill, and others. No date has yet been set for the meeting following.
