BILLS AND LEGISLATION COMMITTEE COMMENCES INQUIRIES TODAY

WEDNESDAY 26 OCTOBER 2016

Parliament has been very active for the last few days and with the addition of inquiries now before the Bills and Legislation Committee (BLC), two programs are now happening at once in our Parliament House.

This shows the vibrancy of our young Parliament as we continue to engage all ages and sectors in various programmes we aspire to achieve within an institution that strives to fulfil its vision: To be a modern Parliament that fulfills its constitutional duties and effectively serves the people of Solomon Islands.

The Parliamentary Bills and Legislation Committee will begin their inquiries into the Bills now before the House, starting today, Wednesday 26th October 2016.

Currently there are three Bills Hon. Speaker Ajilon Nasiu had endorsed and they are now put on notice.

The three Bills are:

  1. The Town and Country Planning (Amendment) Bill 2016
  2. The Land Surveyors Bill 2016 and the
  3. Adoption (Amendment) Bill 2016

According to schedule, BLC will hear from stakeholders of the Surveyors Bill 2016, followed by the Adoption (Amendment) Bill 2016 and the ends with The Town and Country Planning (Amendment) Bill 2016.

Take note that this is the 5th meeting of the 10th Parliament and the last meeting for 2016, therefore, Parliament is expecting few more Bills to come including the the 2017 Appropriation Bill 2016 for this last meeting of 2016.

Meanwhile, the National Youth Parliament will be debating in the chamber while these hearings will be conducted at the same time next to the chamber in the conference room where hearings are usually held.

Media coverage of both events is expected on a high note and a delayed live Broadcast of the BLC on SIBC will continue as usual.
