Bill Watch Parliamentary Committees Series 34-2014



[4th July 2014]

Committee Meetings Open to the Public on Monday 7th July

The committee meetings listed below will be open to the public on Monday 7th July. 

Members of the public may attend these open meetings, but as observers only, not as participants, i.e. they may listen but not speak.  The meetings are at Parliament in Harare.  If attending, please use the entrance on Kwame Nkrumah Ave between 2nd and 3rd Streets.  Please note that IDs must be produced.

Open meetings on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday will be notified in a separate bulletin to be circulated as soon as possible.

Please Note

Please note that while the following details are based on the latest information from Parliament, there are sometimes unavoidable last-minute changes to the meetings schedule.  Persons wishing to attend are therefore advised to avoid disappointment by checking with the relevant committee clerk [see names below] that the meeting is still on and open to the public.  Some of next Monday’s items, for instance, reschedule meetings that did not come off as planned last Monday.

Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare 700181 and 252940/1.
