The government calls on the opposition to give its support to proposed amendments to the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Property Bill.
Minister of Finance, Colm Imbert, made the appeal while piloting debate on the Bill during Wednesday’s extraordinary sitting of the House of Representatives.
Mr Imbert claimed the changes will help with the ease of doing business locally as well as make provisions for emergencies which may arise.
He said the regulations got the backing of public comment, the parliament, and the procurement regulator.
However, Minister Imbert said the bill contains errors which must be addressed.
Mr Imbert cited how Britain dealt with a similar bill over a seven day period and over five hundred amendments were made to the legislation.
