ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER

LAUNCH OF THE WASTE MANAGEMENT AND BIN ROLLOUT PROGRAMME

          THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: I have to inform the House that the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate will hold a Waste Management Launch and Bin Rollout to Parliamentarians on Thursday, 18th May, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Africa Unity Square.

FIRST READING

MINES AND MINERALS AMENDMENT BILL [H.B. 19, 2015]

          THE MINISTER OF MINES AND MINING DEVELOPMENT (HON. W. CHIDHAKWA) presented the Mines and Minerals Amendment Bill [H.B. 19, 2015].

          Bill read the first time.

          Bill referred to the Parliamentary Legal Committee.

MOTION

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

          THE MINISTER OF MINES AND MINING DEVELOPMENT (HON. W. CHIDHAKWA): May I request that Orders of the Day, Numbers 1 and 2 on today’s Order Paper be stood over until Order of the Day Number 3 has been disposed of.

          HON. GONESE: Just a matter of clarification Madam Speaker. I have no objection but I think that the Hon. Minister owes it to this august House to indicate to us as to whether the relevant Ministers are going to turn up at a later stage because often times, we have had this situation where on a Tuesday or Thursday, which are days where Government business is supposed to take precedence, we have a situation where the relevant Ministers do not turn up and we end up not debating those Bills. In particular Madam Speaker, in respect of Order Number 2, you will recall that on Tuesday the debate was prematurely adjourned because the Hon. Vice President who is in charge of that particular Bill was not in attendance; neither was the Minister of State in his office or even the officials from the relevant organ on National Healing were not in attendance. At this point in time, I think it is important for us as the representatives of the people of Zimbabwe to be appraised as to whether the Hon. Vice President is going to turn up or whether he has again thumped his nose at us showing the total disdain that he shows for this august institution. In moving his motion for the Orders to be stood over, it is important for us to know where we stand in that regard.

          THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER: I think the Administration of Parliament, with the help of the Chief Whips will have to write to the responsible Ministers to be present in time for their Bills to be debated.

          Motion put and agreed to.

MOVABLE PROPERTY SECURITY INTERESTS BILL, (H. B. 7A, 2016)

          THE MINISTER OF MINES AND MINING DEVELOPMENT (HON. W. CHIDHAKWA) on behalf of THE MINISTER OF FINANCE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (HON. CHINAMASA): Madam Speaker, I move that the Bill be read the third time.

          Motion put and agreed to.

          Bill read the third time.
