Proposed Amendment to Section 4.18.

  • Jim Osborne

    Section 4.18. This too supports the objective of separating Executive and Legislative powers (see my comment under 4.17) Parliament must have control of the order of business otherwise we will replicate the elective dictatorship that is manifest in the UK parliamentary system.
