MPs ordered to attend proceedings
Members of Parliament were reminded last Friday that they must attend House of Assembly sittings and committee meetings.
Dennis Lister, the Speaker of the House, said it had been brought to his attention that some politicians had not been attending committees.
Mr Lister asked members at the end of the session on Friday to reflect on the House’s standing orders.
He said: “Every member is bound to attend the meetings of the House and its committees, unless notice of leave of absence has been given, in advance and in writing, to the Speaker.
“It has been brought to my attention that members have not had a good record of attendance on committees. That is not acceptable, just like your non-attendance at this House is not acceptable and I ask all members to reflect on that during the time they are away from here.”
Parliament will reconvene on April 13.
