PARLIAMENT will convene for its third meeting on the 15th of October 2015.
This is the 3rd meeting of the tenth Parliament.
Speaker of the National Parliament of Solomon Islands, Ajilon Jasper Nasiu has received a copy of the notice to the Governor General from the Prime Minister confirming the date of the meeting.
So far no Government Bill has yet reached Parliament, but it is expected that a number of Bills would be brought before Parliament at this meeting.
In its previous meeting in April, Parliament has passed two Bills. They were the 2015 Appropriation Bill 2015 and the Fisheries Management Bill 2015.
Motions that were brought before the House are: The Address of thanks to the Governor General’s speech given to Parliament and the motion of appreciation for the UNDP Parliamentary Strengthening Programme that ended in March this year.
The Clerk and the staff of the National Parliament Office are now preparing for the meeting, especially the Bills and Legislation Committee who will be calling stakeholders for hearings on certain Bills that will come before the House before they are being debated and passed.
