Premier’s Question Time is scheduled for today as MPs return to the House of Assembly after the summer break.

David Burt, the Premier, will also deliver a speech on “moving beyond the pandemic” and Kim Wilson, the health minister, will table a fifth extension of the emergency health powers.

The impact of remote learning, imposed for the return to public schools this week as cases of the virus rose, will be outlined by Diallo Rabain, the education minister.

Jason Hayward, the labour minister, will discuss the extension of Permanent Resident’s Certificates to long-term residents.

Mr Hayward announced changes to immigration policy last month, designed to streamline the PRC application process and cut fees from $50,000 to $10,000.

Three pieces of legislation are eligible for debate.

The Human Rights Amendment Bill was drawn up to update regulations for the creation of a tribunal to hear complaints.

The Gaming Amendment Act will prohibit members of the Legislature from sitting on the Bermuda Gaming Commission.

The Marine and Ports Services Amendment Bill, if approved, will tighten regulations for the piloting of Bermudian vessels.
