By Aaron Humes: There are conflicting reports as to whether today’s meeting of the House of Representatives will be the last for this session ahead of looming general elections. 

But it has a lengthy agenda, highlighted by second readings and debates on the Immigration (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill, 2020; the Caribbean Community (Free Movement of Skilled Persons) (Amendment) Bill, 2020; the Land Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2020; Radiation Safety and Security Bill, 2020, and the Cybercrime Bill, 2020. 

Coming to the House for the first time are the Defence (Amendment) Bill, 2020, which aims to update original provisions to conform with the Constitution and other laws; Trade in Endangered Species Bill, which proposes to give effect to the provision of the CITES on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna and to promote the management, conservation and protection of threatened and endangered species; and Representation of the People (Amendment) Bill, to extend the time for the restriction of the sale of intoxicating liquor on Election Day. 

As per usual, we will have more throughout and after the session.
