Parliamentarians called back to Lower House after SOE regulations blunder

The government has had to hastily call back parliamentarians to the House of Representatives on Thursday after tabling the wrong regulations for the State of Public Emergency in place in St. Catherine.
 
The Emergency Powers (Parish of  St. Catherine) (No. 2) Regulations were tabled in the House on Tuesday.
 
However, a notice from Gordon House Wednesday afternoon advised that the House would be meeting again Thursday with the only item on the agenda being the tabling of Emergency Powers (Parish of St. Catherine) (No. 3) Regulations.
 
It said that document would revoke the previous one.
 
The regulations have been highly anticipated since last Friday's court ruling that the regulations under which taxi operator Roshaine Clarke was detained in St. James in 2018 breached the Constitution.
 
However, the regulations tabled Tuesday were identical to the ones with which the court took issue.
