The House of Representatives will meet in Belmopan Tomorrow and we are sure that with the latest scandals surrounding the Government of the day there will be a number of fireworks. While we are sure that the Passport, Nationality and Visa scandal will be the Oppositions main ammo, majority of the items on the agenda have to do with finances and will start with an introduction of bills to amend the Criminal Code (Amendment) 2013.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs will also take legislation to the floor of the house, seeking to amend the Customs and Excise Duties.
Also on the agenda for tomorrow’s house meeting is the second reading for the High Seas Fishing Bill which seeks to make new and improved provisions for the management and control of fishing on the high seas. Prime Minister Dean Barrow will also bring to the floor a second reading for the Medical Practice Bill, 2013 which seeks to provide for the control and regulation of the practice of medicine in Belize by medical practitioners; to repeal the Medical Practitioners Act, Chapter 318 of the Substantive Laws of Belize. Other matters including write-offs and motions relating to the business or sitting of the house will be discussed. Friday’s House of Representatives meeting starts at ten o’clock in the morning at the National Assembly Building in Belmopan and CTV3 News will be right on the front line capturing all that takes place inside and outside the House.
