Important Bills to be presented next Monday
Public Accounts Committee to resume after Parliament sitting
The Parliament sitting next Monday will see the presentation of important Bills. Government Whip Ashneel Sudhakar said the Freedom of Information Bill 2016 would be among these important Bills presented in Parliament. “As the Government’s choice we will decide which Bill will be tabled during the day,” he said. “The first four days will be Government business and the last day is Opposition business.” Government will bring in Parliament their proposed Bills, their motions and ministerial statements. “Opposition business is when they bring in their private Bills, motions or petitions,” he said. Mr Sudhakar said Parliament calendar was from September last year to September this year. “Even though Parliament was not sitting but work was in progress like Standing Committee meetings,” he said. Mr Sudhakar said reports would be submitted on Monday in Parliament and all throughout the week. “There are two more Parliament sittings left for this Parliament year,” he said. Meanwhile, Mr Sudhakar said the Public Accounts Committee would resume after the Parliament sitting. However, he had been informed by the secretariat that the Leader of Opposition was considering a replacement for Biman Prasad. “We need someone to replace him to give Opposition a fair chance but the quorum will continue but giving the Opposition a fair chance allowing their nomination and will start full swing after Parliament,” he said.
A report on the ratification without reservations of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities will be tabled in Parliament next week.
