Bring your blankets.

That was the message from Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, to Members of Parliament yesterday when he moved a motion to change Parliament’s working hours.

The motion, which was supported, means Parliament starts at 9am until 1pm. It then resumes at 7pm until 11pm for the remaining days of this session.

Yesterday, Tuilaepa said it was important for the House to get through all the work that they have before them.

In their haste to achieve this, Tuilaepa reminded Members to bring their blankets because the House tends to get quite cold at night.

He said it’s important to stay warm since they don't want anyone “to go quickly.”

Yesterday’s session was much- anticipated.

It was one where the Officers of Parliament Committee report was to be discussed. At press time, it had not happened.

The only bills debated during the morning session were the Family Court Bill 2013 and the National Kidney Foundation Amendment Bill 2013.

Parliament is continuing.
