(Dominica News Online) KINGSTOWN, ST.

Select Committee meetings have been on-going and have been well attended over the past two weeks in the capital city of Kingstown.

A government official has revealed that the three draft Bills are expected to be discussed and passed when Parliament sits on the week of October 15th 2018.
