Short session for Senators on the cards
Senators are expected to sit for a short session tomorrow when the Upper House resumes after the summer break.
There are just two bills on the order paper – the Human Rights Amendment Act 2021, and the Marine & Ports Services Amendment Act.
The human rights legislation was designed to give the Human Rights Tribunal greater independence from the Human Rights Commission.
The amendments also set out who would able to sit on the tribunal, how it should be appointed and how many members it should have.
The marine legislation was drawn up to tighten regulations for the piloting of Bermudian vessels.
Both bills were passed in the House of Assembly last Friday.
Owen Darrell, the junior education minister, will deliver a statement on the impact Covid-19 has had on in-school learning.
He will also table Bermuda College’s 2020 audited financial statements.
