The Anti-Gang Bill will receive its first reading before the House of Assembly when it convenes on Tuesday, April 2, 2013.
The Bill seeks to prohibit gangs and gang-related activity and makes it an offence to be part of, or knowingly aid and abet gangs, directly or indirectly.
Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Economic Affairs, Planning and Social Security, Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, is also expected to seek the authorization of the House to guarantee the sum of $3, 298,446.00, for loans from the Saint Lucia Development Bank for students pursuing studies abroad.
Members of the Lower House will also consider amendments to the Tourism Incentives Act and the Fiscal Incentives Act to backdate concessions to investors. Amendments to the Police Act will also be considered.
The sitting of the House of Assembly starts at 10:00am and will be carried live on the National Television Network, as is customary.
