As part of ensuring that the Businesses on the floor of the House are dealt with as the House prepares to go on recess, the House would sit on Monday, August 10, 2020 to conduct business and expected to sit beyond 2:00pm each day under consideration.

Majority Leader Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu in presenting the business statement on Friday indicated to the House that it is expected that the House adjourn sine die on Friday, August 14, 2020.

He was however quick to point out that the Minority members of the Committee had given indications that they would not go beyond Wednesday, August 12, 2020, hence they want to see the House adjourned sine die this day.

“Rt. Hon. Speaker having regarded the tall order of outstanding business earlier alluded to, members are entreated to endure just two days sitting days in order to dispose of all the important business pending before the House”.

Some of the outstanding bills before the House are, Development Finance Institution Bill 2020, Security and Intelligence Agencies Bill 2020, University of Skills Training and Entrepreneur Development Bill 2020 as well as a number of agreements presented to the House.

At the same time the House is expected to consider the receivable-backed Trade Finance facility for the purchase of cocoa beans for this year and next year crop season.
