The unavailability of the Minister of Communications Ursula Owusu on Thursday has put the House in a position to take her question either on Friday or in two weeks time.

According to the Majority Leader, the Ministry of Communications had a programme slated on Thursday that clashes with Parliament’s time for her to be on the floor hence her unavailability and pleaded that House gives her another time to come before the House.

He further told the House Thursday was a cabinet meeting and later in the day the Minister would attend cabinet and he would relate to her the sentiment of the House, as the Business committee had planed that there would be no question time next week as the period would be devoted to the 2020 budget debate.

Checks conducted by in Parliament indicates that the Minister has been programmed to answer a question on the floor of the House that Thursday.

Member of Parliament for Afadzato South, Angela Oforiwa-Tay wanted to know when nine communities in her constituency would be provided with mobile telephone network connectivity.

Mr Joseph Yieleh Chireh commenting on the situation noted that the letter the Minster wrote to the House did not state when she would be available in the future, advising that Ministers should indicate when they would be available in such situations.
