(BVI News) Premier Andrew Fahie has made a stern promise that his government will be moving to have the Integrity in Public Life Bill passed through the House of Assembly before the end of March 2021.
This legislation is something Fahie had promised during his 2019 election campaign.
“The Integrity in Public Life Bill maintains a priority on your government’s legislative agenda. In fact, by the first quarter of 2021, this Bill will be back before Cabinet for final consideration, then before the House of Assembly and then wait for the assent by the Governor,” Fahie said in a Press statement on Tuesday.
“This initiative of the Premier’s Office is important for two reasons. One: It represents our continued maturity as a people who have long been in control of our affairs. Two: It represents our commitment to strengthening governance, which remains important for having a stable economy,” he added.
