Mr Speaker, the Report from the Finance Committee on the long term loan facility agreement between the Government of Ghana, represented by the Ghana Cocoa Board, and the African Development Bank is not ready, so the Motion cannot be taken yet.
Equally, the Report on the waiver of stamp duty on the Cocoa Productivity Enhancement Pro- grammes is also not ready, so item numbered 8 which is a Motion cannot also be taken. We would defer both of them.
The consequential Resolutions, that is items numbered 7 and 9 cannot also be taken. Further to that, item numbered 10 which is a Motion that the Constitution (Amendment) Bill, 2019 be now read a second time cannot also be taken. This is because we are having some consultations which have not been concluded. That being the case, we cannot take that Motion today.
Mr Speaker, -- [Interruption] - - the consultations are not concluded as I said -- I could not be early to the Business Committee meeting, so
I was just told by the Clerks-at-the- Table to factor that into the Business Statement for next week, and in all likelihood and probability, we would take that next week Thursday, by which time, I strongly believe, we would have concluded the consultations.
Mr Speaker, there are Committees that have been slated for meetings; the Standing Orders Committee started meeting this morning and I believe that it may be worth their concern while we continue the meet after we adjourn. The Committee on Constitu- tional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs would also be meeting, the Committee on Local Government and Rural Development is programmed to meet and I know that the Committee on Special Budget would meet with the Electoral Commission officials and they will engage in very crucial meetings.
Mr Speaker, that being the case and having exhausted the programme for today, I beg to move that this House do now adjourn till tomorrow at 10 o'clock in the forenoon.
