The following Ministers would take a question each in the name of their Ministries, Education, Trade and Industry, Railways Development, Interior, Gender Child and Social Protection, Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, and Local Government and Rural Development.

Mr. Osei-Kyei also revealed that leadership has received information about a worrying development where visitors come to the premises of Parliament in increasing numbers, despite the directives issued by the Speaker in line with the COVID-19 protocols.

In addition, some research assistants of MPs and national service persons are still reporting to duty contrary to same directive issued by the Speaker in line with the COVI-19 protocols.

He appealed to his colleagues and staff against inviting visitors to Parliament unless it is so compelling in which case concern and clearance from leadership of both side must be sought same with the clerk to Parliament.
