More open parliamentary discussion time needed
Lots of time and effort has been spent by all political parties and their supporters on the most recent state election.
Now we hear that the State Government will be sitting for the grand total of 35 days this year.
I have always believed that the floor of the parliament was where all elected members of all political parties could speak their piece and air the views of their constituents, not back in an office where divergent views can be stifled.
I believe that all elected members are entitled to have more open parliamentary discussion time, where the voters can see and hear that their elected members are working towards their good with strong and diverse discussion not just one-sided management.
With the state election having been so close, it seems to me that elected members should have more parliamentary time to work for the benefit of the people, the voters of the State.
