The Central Committee Hearing scheduled for 22 November with the Chamber of Commerce & Industry concerning the National Ordinance on Consumer Protection, has been postponed until further notice.
The Chamber of Commerce & Industry was invited to parliament to give its input with respect to the National Ordinance supplementing Title 1 of Book 7 of the Civil Code regarding provisions to Protect Consumers, particularly on Telesales Contracts and Warranties (National Ordinance Consumer Purchases).
A parliamentary secretariat staff meeting has been scheduled for the morning hours and the postponement allows the Chamber of Commerce & Industry additional time to carry out research and prepare for the hearing when it is re-scheduled.
A presentation to the Central Committee of Parliament by the General Audit Chamber is still scheduled for Tuesday at 2.00pm in the General Assembly Chamber of Parliament.
The General Audit Chamber will update Members of Parliament about current affairs and their proposal for a Committee of Government Expenditures.
