Rowley said he had been in the Parliament since January 1987 and since then the country knows the Parliament does not sit in August.
“Members of Parliament who had expected to be on vacation are busy at airports trying to make their way back to this Parliament to take part in this debate,” he said. He said half the Cabinet was surprised by the legislation when it was tabled last Monday.
This prompted Chief Whip McDonald to ask whether the Legislative Review Committee of the Cabinet also saw and signed off on the bill.
