Mr Speaker, the issue raised by the Hon Member for Atwima Mponua has brought to the fore the importance of holding Closed Sittings as Mr Speaker has suggested, periodically, so that some of these matters may be aired. And I would propose that the joint Caucus, which is really to discuss welfare matters, preceding the joint Caucus, we
could have a Closed Sitting or a Committee of the Whole, so that these matters can be discussed. They are not welfare matters to be discussed at joint Caucus; they are matters affecting the Business of this House, except that these are not matters which may be necessary for the general public to know. This is because they are in-house matters.
So, I am suggesting to the Leadership, probably, after discussing with Mr Speaker, if we have a Closed Sitting or a Committee of the Whole to precede the joint Caucus, so that some of these matters may be discussed.
Mr Speaker, just to confirm what the Hon Member for Old Tafo said,we were at the Finance Committee when the Hon Chairman and Hon Ranking Member were given a certain booklet and I said, what is this booklet? And they said, oh, it is the Budget Appropriation and I said, then we should know and they told us.
So, when we come as you suggested, to the Committee of the Whole and Closed Sitting, then probably, we would know whether it would not be -- [Interruption] -- Well, if it is not too expensive for Hon Members who are interested in having to know, to also be given access to this thing -- that is all. But certainly, at plenary like this, to be bold discussing these matters in detail, may not really help because we may then not have the opportunity to discuss these matters informally.
