PARLIAMENTARY PRACTICE & PROCEDURE
Councillor (Wilson) Tony Duncan will represent St Helena at the 64th Westminster Seminar on Parliamentary Practice & Procedure, due to be held in the Houses of Parliament in London – running from Monday 30 November to Friday 4 December 2015.
Every year, the five-day programme aims to strengthen the knowledge, skills and confidence of first-term Members of Parliament and newly appointed Clerks, Councillors and Officials in the core aspects of their Parliamentary work. It provides a unique platform for its participants to meet their counterparts and explore Parliamentary democracy, practice and procedure within a Westminster framework – and share experiences and common challenges in their Parliamentary work.
The 2015 programme covers an Introduction to the Westminster System, an Overview of the Legislative Process, the Role of the Speaker, Giving MPs a Voice, and the Ever-evolving Parliament – Parliamentary Ethics & Standards and Best Practice in Holding a Committee Enquiry.
Councillor Duncan departs St Helena today, Monday 23 November 2015, and will return on 23 December 2015.
