Ceremonial opening for Parliament
There is to be a ceremonial opening of the third session of the Tenth Parliament when it convenes early next month at Tower D, Waterfront Complex, Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain. That was confirmed by the Leader of Government Business, Housing and the Environment Minister Dr Roodal Moonilal. It will be the first ceremonial opening of Parliament at its new temporary location. The Red House is under extensive renovation, which is expected to be completed in 2015. President George Maxwell Richards is expected to address both the House of Representatives and the Senate at the sitting. Security inside and around the building that day will be increased. Among the major bills expected to be debated early in the new term are a bill to allow the Land Settlement Agency (LSA) to demolish squatters homes and the Beverage Container Bill. The Parliament is expected to be prorogued next week Tuesday and reconvene two weeks later.
