The debate on the 2022 Budget Statement and Government Economic Policy will begin next Tuesday, November 23, according to Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
He stated that the Business Committee was looking forward to a well-researched and educated debate, and suggested that each day’s discussion be divided into distinct areas.
“That is to maintain discussion coherence, comprehension, and logical flow,” the Majority Leader remarked as he presented the Business Statement for the Fifth Week Ending Friday, November 26, 2021 in Parliament.
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu stated that the Business Committee suggested that the Finance, Environment, Gender, Foreign Affairs, Youth and Sports, and Employment committees take turns on Tuesday, November 23.
The committees on Health, Trade and Industry, Communication, Local Government, Lands and Forestry, Works and Housing, and Energy and Mining will meet on Wednesday, November 24.
The Education, Agriculture, Roads and Transportation, Defense and Interior, Judiciary, Parliament, Independent Governance Institutions, and Government Machinery committees will take turns on Thursday, November 25.
On Friday, November 26th, the leadership; the Majority and Minority sides, would wrap up the argument.
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu stated that on each day of the debate, two members from each political party would be asked to participate.
In light of the business scheduled for the week under consideration, he encouraged the House to start proceedings at 1000 hours regular time.
The House’s Business Committee proposed that each day’s sitting be prolonged in order for the House to finish on Friday, as planned.
