Madam Speaker, I believe as Parliament of Ghana, we should be more serious when it comes to business that we conduct in this House. Yesterday for example, an apology was rendered why we could not lay the report and at least, this morning, as you know, we were supposed to convene at 10 o'clock but the House was convened at 12.00 noon in anticipation that the report would be ready.
Madam Speaker, we should not forget that we travel from distant places to come to this place. So if anything at all, there should be communication to hon. Members that we are shifting the Sitting to 11 o'clock or whatever it is. Of late, we just come and instead of 10 o'clock, the time for Sitting is shifted to 11 o'clock, or 12 o'clock, whatever.
Madam Speaker, I think we should
be more serious because Ghanaians are watching what we are doing in Parliament. Parliament should be serious in the way we conduct our businesses because we are here to offer quality service to the people of this country. Henceforth the Business Committee should be more serious and we must give a shining example to other Ghanaian workers that Parliament, indeed, is serious and that we mean business.
