As the brouhaha rages on over the General Legal Council’s (GLC) Legislative Instrument (LI) before Parliament’s Subsidiary Legislation, to legalise entrance to the Ghana Law School, Chairman of the Committee on Subsidiary Legislation has revealed that withdraw of the LI before the committee as a result of inconsistency in the day it was laid and garzzeted has caused all the delay in the committee presenting its report.

He made this remarks as a result of calls from the Majority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu for the committee to speed up its work because of the anxiety it is generating.

Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak and Alexander Afenyo-Markin have embarked on a crusade to gather signatures to throw away the GLC LI before the Subsidiary Legislation Committee.

According to the Chairman of the committee, they have had three meetings and were putting their reports together, then the agitation from the Students Representative started, and the committee had to make time for the General Legal Council (GLC) and the Attorney General to hear all the parties involved so that their concerns can be factored in the Committees report.

He then informed the House that the Committee would present its report on Wednesday 28th February 2018.
