GCCI expresses disappointment with the opposition for voting down bills dealing with the security sector – 19th Jun 2013
The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce & Industry, President Clinton Urling says he is saddened by the recent actions of the Opposition Parties in the National Assembly to vote down four bills presented by the Minister of Home Affairs last week.
Urling said for the business community security is a major issue of concern.
The Chamber in a press statement said that it would appear as though the Opposition parties are not prepared to support any bills, despite its merit or substance, once such bills are presented by Minister Rohee.
Urling is hoping that both the Government and the Opposition Parties can sit and discuss their differences given the critical nature the security sector plays in society.
The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce & Industry wants to see a constructive and careful examination of all Bills presented in the National Assembly with the aim of arriving at agreeable positions.
The Bills that the Government wanted to be passed in the National Assembly last Thursday included amendments to the Evidence Act, the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act and the Fire Service Act.
