Standing Committees

NDP St. John's Centre MHA Gerry Rogers

NDP St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers says she hopes the select committee of the House of Assembly that all parties approved last Wednesday will get to work sooner rather than later. She wrote to Health Minister Steve Kent this morning, and is encouraged that he has indicated he will be in touch next week to discuss it.
