Four important Bills have not found space in Business statement---Kumbungu MP

Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak, is lamenting over the inability of the Business Committee to bring to the House four important Bills that impact the life of Ghanaians.

According to the Kumbungu lawmaker, at the start of the third session of the seventh Parliament of the fourth Republic, an agenda was given.

“The Aging Bill, Disability Bill, Social Protection Bill and Affirmative Action Bill are all missing whiles the Business statement was presented by the Majority Leader”, he lamented.  

Mr. Ras Mubarak noted that he was hoping that the impact the above Bills would have on society they would have found expression in the Business Statement for the week but that was not the case. 

Again Mr. Speaker has made several referrals to various committees that had been outstanding, for four months now.
Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu responded by saying, he agrees with the Kumbungu lawmaker, but just to say agenda presented gives an indication of work to be done in the course of a meeting but it is subject to review. 

“What we had set out relates to work to be done I the course of the entire year, that is in a session so as we go along we take away those of them that we are able to do, it is not cast in stone we may have to review as we go along”, he said on the floor.
