The public is reminded that the Joint Select Committee on the Integrity in Public Life Bill 2018 will commence its work next Monday, August 27, in the Senate Chamber, Parliament Buildings, Bridgetown, at 1:30 p.m.

The Bill is currently available at Parliament, the Government Printing Department, post offices across the island, public libraries and online at www.barbadosparliament.com.

In addition, the Committee may also invite persons or summon witnesses under the law to attend its meetings to give evidence, to help towards formulating a well informed and balanced report.
