PAC hearings to resume Monday

Committee also hosts meeting on new Immigration bills

After weeks of suspension, the hearings of the Public Accounts Committee, tasked to examine, consider and report on the Auditor General’s reports on public finances, is due to resume meetings on Monday, November 25.

The meetings which had been slated for October were initially postponed due to inclement weather and the rescheduled meeting did not happen because only two of six committee members attended.

The PAC meetings are scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Monday, November 25 and 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 27.

On Monday afternoon at 3:30, the National Security and Immigration Committee meets to consider three new bills tabled at a meeting of the House of Representatives on Friday, November 1.

Those bills are the Immigration (Amendment) Bill, 2013; the Belizean Nationality (Amendment) Bill, 2013; and the Passport (Amendment) Bill, 2013, which the House had referred to the Committee “for examination, consideration and report.”

The National Assembly notes that feedback on the bills can be made in person at the Committee meeting, or in writing to the Clerk of the National Assembly.
