MORE bills are expected to be tabled in this current last meeting before the ninth Parliament dissolve on 8th September 2014.
This was revealed by the Speaker of Parliament Sir Allan Kemakeza in his opening speech when Parliament resumed on Wednesday.
Sir Allan said he knew the Government intended to bring more Bills thus he warned Members of Parliament to look forward to and deliberate on them when they come before the House.
“This would be a very busy one as some members have also lodged questions to be asked in the House” Sir Allan said.
The first three Bills that came before the house were The Family Protection Bill 2014, Provincial Government (Amendment) Bill 2014 and the Business Names Bill 2014.
A fourth Bill that is currently before the Speaker’s Office is the Solomon Islands National University (Amendment) Bill 2014.
Inquiries into the Family Protection Bill 2014 by the Bills and Legislation Committee (BLC) were concluded on Tuesday the 12th August 2014 after it started on Monday the 11th.
Its full report is expected to be completed soon before it is debated on the floor of Parliament.
Meanwhile, Parliament has been adjourned to Monday 18th August to allow the BLC to conduct its hearing on the Provincial Government (Amendment) Bill 2014 and the Solomon Islands National University (Amendment) Bill 2014.
