Premier David Burt today [Oct 22] advised that the Legislature would continue to meet until the Christmas recess is taken in December, saying that “the Government’s legislative agenda can and should continue without the interruption of the traditional Convening of the Legislature.”

The House of Assembly and the Senate will meet every-other-week until the 13th and 16th of December respectively.

The Premier said: “The Government’s legislative agenda can and should continue without the interruption of the traditional Convening of the Legislature.

“I believe there is an interest on both sides in continuing to work on those things that will continue to promote economic growth and activity for Bermuda and advance the social, educational and business support the community needs.

“Already in this session we have passed legislation to benefit economic empowerment zones and we will soon pass much needed pension reforms.

“Economic opportunity for Bermudians and Bermudian businesses will be front and centre during this ongoing session as will the legislation to support the development of the St. George’s Marina, the consolidation of our labour laws and the development of a medical cannabis regime for Bermuda.”

The Premier indicated that he had consulted with the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate, both of whom had supported the revised meeting schedule.
