I do not know whether we should carry on. I have got the two sides. So let me look at the procedure -- the rules and rule now. We have got two rulings of former Speakers. One, we have been told by Hon Bagbin -- he said one thing, another said one thing and I am going to support one of them.
The register is marked by the Clerks in this House because Hon Members did not agree to sign any register, that is my information. So, the Clerks-at-the-Table produce names of people who come here, however short period of time they spend here, it is reflected. What is reflected in the Votes and Proceedings is supposed to be the facts of what happened.
Like was said before, that, in the House, we did correct it to say the Chief Justice came with people, not particularly Supreme Court. So, it is normally what happens in the House and that is, the list is taken from those who come to this House at all.
As for the people who are doing parliamentary work and had travelled to international conferences, they had permission. They have already asked for permission. Those who are not here for other matters also have asked for permission but this attendance reflects those who come to this House. We have a Supplement at the back which also reflects those who attend committee meetings and it is my view that we should keep it that way. We must record those who
come to this House and those who attend committee meetings after proceedings here to encourage us to come and join in debates.
I think, in this way, I will choose Hon Peter Adjetey's ruling, that you come here. If you do not come here, of course, you have permission to stay out and if you go to committee meetings, it is after you come here, so that it should reflect those who come here.
So the objection by the Hon Member that he did not see Hon K. T. Hammond in this House, means he was not in the House, so he was absent. Clerk to take note.
Shall we move on; have we finished with the Correction of the Votes and Proceedings of Thursday, 25th?
