Living wage to be debated in House
Debates on the treatment of sex offenders and the establishment of a minimum wage are expected to dominate what is expected to be a long session of the House of Assembly today.
A report on wages called for the implementation of a minimum wage of $12.25 by May 2019 and a livable wage by 2021.
Another report on sex offenders made recommendations for mandatory treatment and better management of sex offenders, as well as counselling and support for victims and their families.
MPs will also debate three Bills.
These include a law to transfer responsibility for maritime security to the Royal Bermuda Regiment from the Bermuda Police Service.
David Burt, the Premier and Minister of Finance, will make a statement designed to give a snapshot of the Budget over the first quarter of this year, compared with last year.
The session is the last of the summer and the House is scheduled to resume in November.
