About Us

The United Parliament of the Most Christian Bresdennian Realm,the official name of the Bresdennian parliament, creates the legislation and carries out other duties given by the Great Constitution. The United Parliament is bicameral, made up of The Chamber of Peers and The People's Assembly. The Parliaments earliest session was in 1222 following the year of Bresdennian Independence from the French. In 1437, the Unification of the Realms of 1437 was passed and the Bresdennian Parliament became the Parliament of Greater Bresdenn. This included and combined the governments and parliaments of Bresdenn, Varionae, and The Bresdennique Islands. The current Parliament's first session was in the Winter of 1789 after the Reformation of Government Act of 1789. The nobility, being law bound to counsel the sovereign and retaining much prestige took seniority to the commoner members. In 1791,The Parliament was split into two houses because of infighting and uneffectiveness. The Chamber of Peers serves as the upper house. Prince Michael Sabastian de Caple served as the first Lord Speaker. The People's Assembly was created as the lower. Mr.Calvin Corbaine, a rich merchant from Southern Bresdenn, was elected the first President.

The Bresdennian Legislative Year is split into 2 groups, Winter/Fall Session and the Spring/Summer Session. The sessions are split by the off months Representatives and Peers get. The Spring/Summer Session starts in March until July and Winter/Fall Session begins in September until January. By law, both houses must convene together at minimum of 3 times per month and may be called into special session by the Sovereign on the behest of the Lord Speaker.

The Parliamentary Administrative Office is the office that is directly responsible for the direct support of the United Parliament. The PAO records and files bills, laws, patents, contracts, and historically important document and events via the Parliamentary Archival Office and the Registrar of Bills & Laws. This office supports both houses, The Chamber of Peers and The People's Assembly, with it clerks, aides and resources. The PAO is headed by the Clerk of the United Parliament who

is responsible for the administration and resource management. The Clerk directly deals with the contracts, resources, housekeeping and ground management and other needs of the Parliament. The Clerk works with all officers of each house of parliament as well as the Sovereign's Liaison to Parliament and the Royal College of Advisors. The Clerk is assisted by several officers in the PAO. The Clerk's senior most assistant is the Director of Operations/Administration Clerk. He/She is responsible for task and duties delegated by the Clerk as well as the day to day operation of the PAO, the Parliament Building & grounds and parliamentary office buildings and branches. The PAO is split administratively under the Clerk and Administration Clerk. The Parliamentary Research Office and the Parliamentary Archival Office, with the Parliamentary Archival Office(AOP) operating almost independently. The Parliamentary Archival Office is led by the Secretariat/Director. The Secretariat is responsible for the office administration, printing duties, the operation of the Parliamentary Library & Exhibit as well as duties of a Librarian Administrator. The Registrar of Bills and Laws is an unique position, reporting to multiple officers. The Registrar is the officer responsible for the clerical editing, assigning Bill and Law Archival Codes, typing and preparing official document and presentation to the Sovereign for signing in Parliament Session. Bresdennian Law mandates that all Bills that come before the Sovereign must be prepared and signed by the Registrar, signed by the President of the People's Assembly and by the Lord Speaker. The Parliamentary Research Office(PRO) is the branch of the PAO that is responsible for the research of any matter for the use of Parliamentary members to better support, not support, gain a stance, or prepare legislation and oversights. The Research Office will gather information on a topic for their need. The PRO is led by the Director. The last major officer of the PAO is the Chief Financial Officer. The Chief Financial Officer is charged with the fiscal responsibility of the Parliament. The CFO is directly responsible for fiscal contracts, parliamentary account management, procurement and reimbursements dealing with approved transactions and the payment of services. The CFO has the legal use of all the Bresdennian government's resources to recover payments owed to parliament.

Chamber of Peers

The Chamber of Peers(CoP) is unique body. The CoP has been in session prior to the signing of The Great Constitution. The nobles of the Realm by birthright and law have the duty to counsel their sovereign.

The Prelate of the Holy Bresdennian Church serves as Chief Counselor of State for Religion and is not elected by the body.the Lord Spirituals are members of the Chamber and serve as Counselors of the Sovereign's Conscience by tradition and law. Since the founding of the The Holy Bresdennian Baptist Church, seats have been reserved for the 12 senior most Archbishops and Bishops.They have authority over the religious factors of the state.Their position today is almost advisory but do continue to have political sway. Any noble may potentially serve, as a right of a titled noble but can only serve at the request of the Sovereign or by nomination of the Chamber Nominations & Dismissal Committee.

The Law Making Process & Protocol


The Legislative System is a bit different in the realm from other countries such as the U.S. The Chamber of Peer, which is the upper house of the United Parliament of the Bresdennian Realm, cannot introduce laws
Image
Jeremy-Marie Baptiste
Director/Secretariat
Parliamentary Archival Office
such as the US Senate. The Chamber uses Propositions. Propositions are the Chamber's way of suggesting implementations and other Stances to the People's Assembly to debate, form into Stances and returned to approved by the Chamber. The People's Assembly by law is the only house of the United Parliament that can introduce Stances. Stances are legislation that are being drafted, committee reviewed and in process from both houses. The Chamber of Peers has retained a special power called "pas avec le soutien de l'aîné", meaning not with the backing of the elder which allows them to block a Stance by not gaining Sponsors in the Chamber. Bresdennian Law mandates that each bill that comes before the Sovereign's approval must be sponsored by both houses of the United Parliament. ScAny Stance that has not gained any supporters of either house is called a dead mans stance. If not approval but vetoed from the Chamber of Peers the People's Assembly may override with 3/4 majority. If the Stance is approved it is written into a Bill. Bills, which are more formally called Resolution of Stance, are legislation, petitions and other announcements that are debated, reviewed and voted that are ready for the approval of the Sovereign to become law. A Bill must have originated as a Stance by law to ensure both houses have had the opportunity to review, advise,support, augment, debate and augment a proposed law. A Sovereign may veto any bill. In the case of a Sovereign's Veto a special session of the United Parliament is called. The veto may be override if 2/3 of the United Parliament consents. Executive Will of the Sovereign is when the Sovereign directly implements a law. The law is valid without the approval of the United Parliament for 120 days, after that time it can be vetoed or approved permanently.

WE PROPOSE the moving of the government capital of Saint Corlo to "Correlyn", a new city to be built and completed in 2015.

STILL BELIEVING the best solution is to establish a new capital and not extending the limits of St. Corlo as a short term fix for the following reasons;

(d)increased traffic
(e)environment protection issues
(f)high economically cost
(g)disruption in the local economy
(h)the removal of citizens and businesses from homes
(i)the delay of the ultimate meaning expansion

FURTHERMORE, "Correlyn" should be located historic Duchy of Sorrelyn, 21 miles northwest of the present capital. City limits should be confined at minimum of 562 square miles from the center of the city. According to The Chamber of Peer's Research Office, this is where land is most plentiful and disruption to human, environment and government life is minimal.

DETAILING that "The City of Correlyn" shall consist at the most basic level but not limiting to residential housing districts, governmental zones, commercial and business districts as well as educational, recreational and nightlife.

SUPPORTING the idea of many local and foreign construction and architecture firms working together on the completion of the new capital will minimize costs & dilemmas and increase diversity and culture.

BELIEVING the cost of construction section of this project to be capped at maximum of 386 billion Bresdennian Bills and

PROPOSING a budget of 511 billion Bresdennian Bills to ensure all cost may be covered without delay or defray.

SUGGESTING the formation of The National Capital Fund and the withdrawal of 120 billion Bresdennian Bills from The Emergency Government Fund and 163 billion from The Reserve Funds Fund to cover the majority costs of this endeavor.

ESTABLISHING the The Resources for Correlyn Drive to recieve, monitor and record monetary donations and resources from civilian organizations, groups, people and businesses to alleviate cost and include public involvement.

APPLAUDING the support of some of the Royals and nobility, a fund of 21 billion Bresdennian Bills has been collected with a reserve of 58 million Bresdennian Bills for the construction of The Correlyn Palace for the use of the royal family and to host dignitaries while in the capital.

UPON COMPLETION a statue of the skyline of the City of Saint Corlo will be commissioned by the purse of the Sovereign, King Brian IV Paul, to be placed in "The Square of Saint Corlo" in the proposed cultural district

WE RESERVE a donation of 2 billion Bresdennian Bills for public works, culture and use as a token from this house.

THEREFORE be it resolved by this house, The Chamber of Peers of the United Parliament of the Most Christian Bresdennian Realm, assembled today March 12, in the year of our Lord 2013, propose the establishment of a new national capital.

The Royal Proposal to Parliament


16 March 2013


It pleases my conscience to propose to The Excellent Lords and Representatives of my government to abolish the office of the Prime Minister and establish the office of the Lord Inspector.

This is due that the office of the Prime Minister is a somewhat lame duck position given I and the last 3 of my predecessors have retained and have assumed more duties of governing. To make a more effective line of leadership abolishment is needed.

The Royal Proclaimation to Parliament


21 March 2013


It pleases my conscience to proclaim to The Excellent Lords and Representatives of my government that The Dionne Islands and the Colony of Virgonia be fully vested into The Realm with representation in The People's Assembly. Furthermore, I abolish the offices of Governor for each and do organize a peerage system for each of the above said.

Reasoning for such are as follows; Both territories have been under monarchical control for years, the costs of having poly governments governing in my name and adding to the effectiveness of my rule.

The Chamber of Peers will increase to 327, 3 life-term seats for Virgonia and 2 life-term seats for The Dionne Islands which will correlate to titled Duke following.

The titles following shall be the senior of nobility of their respective country beside the Royal Princes and Princesses who titles are adjoined. The Duke of Larsay, The Duke of Zorrinth, and The Duke of Arcoria of Virgionia and The Duke of Kencoa and The Ducal Count of Cavannah of The Dionne Islands have been given the right to lifeterms in The Chamber of Peers, a manorial seat and with my permission a stipend from the Civil List.

With these privileges the Duke or Duchess serves at the grace and pleasure of myself and consequent Sovereigns and must serve in the parliament, pay homage to the crown, must served in the military regardless of sex prior or during the first 4 years during accession and pay 25 percent of their income go directly to charities of their choice.

The People's Assembly will be increased to accommodate properly the representation of the people of the above said.

These measures shall be in place at the ending of this governmental term, November 2013

May God Continue to Bless our Land, our Hearts, and our Conscience, King Brian IV Paul of the Most Christian Bresdennian Realm

The Resolution of Stance of the United Parliament of the Most Christian Bresdennian Realm


Title: Government and Parliamentary Budgets for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 & Financial Report

Resolution No. #GOVT-PARBUD-1415-WF
Floor Date: Dec. 17, 2013

Principal Author:JOINT SUB-COMMITTEE OF FISCAL POLICY & APPROPRIATIONS
Session Year:Winter/Fall 2013

Assembly Votes(Y-N-ABSTAIN):232-78-12

I. Call to Order & Purpose
We, The United Parliament of the Bresdennian Realm, do herby petition Our Sovereign to implement THE GOVERNMENT AND PARLIAMENTARY BUDGETS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2014-1015.

II. Petition Reasoning & Issue
To continue to ensure the continuity of government operations, credit and administration, budgets must be approved to assure funds as current funding shall cease on Jan. 23, 2014 due to lack of funds. The National Budget adheres to preset guidelines and measures. The Joint Sub-Committee of Fiscal Policy & Appropriations has received the Secretariat's Budget Request and divided the National Budget into 5 categories: Parliamentary, Government Operations, Foreign Affairs, Defense & Intelligence, Royal Expenses and Reserve, Savings, Debt & Payments with proposed increased area listed. Annual Expected income for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 is reported to be 3.8 trillion. The increase in funds results from government mining and oiling in Southern Antionique, the gold mining operations in Varionae, the increase in foreign business and other corporate and commercial taxes, increased trading and the off-shore deposit of minerals and silver found in July of 2013 off Alvre Del Mar, Saryland, BR. Since the elimination of the National Debt in 2010, the Ministry of HM's Treasury & Finance & Parliamentary Research Office(PRO) reports annual surpluses over 7.23 billion Bresdennian Bills. The elimination of National Debt allows the government to begin a new fiscal year without debt allocations. This allows the government to withdraw from government saving and reserve accounts. All outgoing payments from the Government of the Bresdennian Realm shall be paid in full no later than Jan. 15, 2014.

The Resolution of Stance of the United Parliament of the Most Christian Bresdennian Realm


Title:THE INCREASE IN REPRESENATIVES IN THE PEOPLE'S ASSEMBLY & THE ALLOTMENT OF NEW SEATS

Resolution No. #INCREPALLSEA #1549 BP
Floor Date: May 2, 2014

Principal Author:Rep. Carlissa Braddick
Session Year: SPRING/SUMMER 2014

Assembly Votes(Y-N-ABSTAIN):264-51-7
Chamber Votes(Y-N-ABSTAIN):123-2-2

Chief Sponsors:

Rep Kenji Barnes
T.E.L. Charles Camden

Rep Juan Suarez
T.E.L. Warren Kelsey


I. Call to Purpose
We, The United Parliament of the Bresdennian Realm, do herby petition Our Sovereign to implement THE INCREASE IN REPRESENATIVES IN THE PEOPLE'S ASSEMBLY & THE ALLOTMENT OF NEW SEATS.

II.Petition Reasoning & Issue
To adequately ensure the representation of the citizens in government, an just amount of Representatives are required to serve. The Bresdennian Realm has swelled in population over recent years, equating to over 5 trillion citizens under Bresdennian influence. The current standing Representatives in the People's Assembly equates to 322, which is roughly equating to each Representative representing over 17,000 citizens. Citizens of Bresdennian Territories/ Colonies of Marj, Saryland, Virgonia, The Dionne Islands, Cherokeeland and Fallstown have no representation in the People's Assembly, which must be remedied for the fairness and effectiveness of government.

III. Resolved Solution
To remedy the situation, we petition to increase membership of the People's Assembly of 322 to 357, to include 3 Representatives from each of the Bresdennian territories/colonies and seats for population increases. This shall be in full effect and measure at the beginning of the Parliamentary Opening Session in 2015.

Joint Committee of Judicial Affairs

The Inquiry from the Joint Committee of Judicial Affairs: Administration and Restructuring of the Ministry of Justice


Wednesday, February 4, 2015
Ordered by the Lord Speaker to be published on/after February 7, 2015.

Members Present: Leonard Kimble (Chair), H. Jeoffrey DeGeneres, Francine Kelly, Lorraine Porcher, Jacques L. Xavier, Martin DuBois, Paul Adrienne, Georg L'Overture

Witness: Jefferey St. Goode, Minister of Justice; Dorian Parker, Deputy Minister, Charles Magotti, Warden General; Karen Johnson, Prosecutor General; Miguel Santana, People's Defender; Kevin Paulette, Deputy Minister of State; Dr. Alderic Holland, Associate Dean/Professor- Bresdennian University School of Law, Dr. Lucille Clement, Adjunt Professor- University of Northern Avion School of Public Policy & Social Work

Questioning


Q1, Chair: Welcome committee members, personnel and officials. This session will focus on the administration and functions of the Ministry of Justice. Attention will be given to structure and other issues that affect effectiveness and pan ministerial operations. This committee will submit its recommendations for restructuring and policy implementations.

Q2, Chair: Minister Saint Goode, What do you consider to be the biggest issue within the ministry? What actions have you taken, within your legal duties, to remedy or inflict change?

Minister St. Goode: The Ministry of Justice is faced with many issues on a daily basis as any ministry. I would have to say that the large administration and old fashioned practices hinder our effectiveness. We have a lot of overlapping of duties leading to some confusion. I have suggested numerous times to the Secretariat as well as this committee the many issues of the ministry. I have issued a Review Commission to review of the ministry in order to determine which policies, practices and positions can be rectified, eliminated or adjusted.

Q3, Chair: Indeed, this committee was made aware of your concerns and be assured Minister St. Goode it was not in vain or ignored. What was the review commission tasked to do exactly? What did the Review Commission say about the ministry?

Minister St. Goode: I asked the commission to point out practices, policies and procedures that were ineffective, partisan, inadequate and unfair. They were asked to submit re-organizational models of the ministry to ensure that the ministry will operate at its best. The effectiveness of the prison system and other similar affairs. In addition, I tasked them with the access of judicial help and court functions. I met with the Lord Chief Supreme Justice and other Associate Justices for input and cooperation on these matters. The Commission pointed out various unenforced policies, outdated regulations and/or with loopholes, the court's public defenders inefficiencies and affairs that needed to be address with the prison system and it's population.

Q4, Francine Kelly: What did the Review Commission consist of as far as membership? When did you receive the review?

Minister St. Goode: The Review Commission consisted of attorney's from the federal bar in good standing, practicing law professionals, professors and ministry officials, Madam. I received the Official Review sometime in the end of November 2014.

Q5, Paul Adrienne: Well since being aware of the state of the ministry, what have you done exactly to fix these issues? Do you feel more could be done on your part?

Minister St. Goode: Since November, i have issued a number of rectifying policies and ordinances to help the problem. I have analysts working to see the financial effects of reorganizing. Well Sir, more could be done on all of our parts to have these issues fixed. In the amount of time, a lot has not been done simply because of time.

Q6, Lorraine Porcher: This is for Deputy Minister Parker and/or Minister St. Goode. What would you say is the state of affairs between the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of State's Division of Public Safety and Emergence Services? Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Santana feel free to add in. Even Mr. Magotti, if you have any input do so.

Deputy Minister Parker: The two ministries have to work in conjunct for the needs of government, but there is need for improved relations and better procedures. Mr. Magotti as well as myself knows the need for improved communications between our two agencies. We deal with lost information and other confusions dealing with new prisoner information, apprehensions and criminal deterrence.
Warden General Magotti: As my superior said, we have to deal with missing information and the lack of communications between us. This effects our fingerprinting, verification and holding issues on a daily basis.
Prosecutor General Johnson: As many of my deputies report from various branches of my offices, we deal with some of the same issues as in records and information quality. The Division of Public Safety & Emergency Services is crucial for prosecutions as they are first hand responders and handle a lot of evidence.

Q7, Lorraine Porcher: Deputy Minister Paulette, as the direct minister in charge for the State Ministry's Division of Public Safety and Emergency Services, what do you think the state of affairs is between the two ministries?

Deputy Minister Paulette: I agree with my colleagues we have an information flow problem between the two ministries. We operate on two totally different informational systems making information confusion or sometime lost. On the other hand, I would like to praise the work of our liaisons in the crime labs and narcotic administration for the level of skill and success the carry out daily, in spite of.

Q8, Chair: Well that goes into my next question, In what ways do you find our present system effective? What procedures, policies or practices that are healthy for the ministry that are currently in use?

Deputy Minister Paulette: In my division, we are currently undertaking changes. Working with the crime labs administrators we have increase the proficiency by 12% and overall time spent on cases in decreased due to technology. I think having Liaisons to bridge the gap between our ministries is helpful. These professional are equipped with the resources and time need to dedicate completion of activities on both ends. This leads to less of the go-around and more work getting done. I believe that current ongoing relationship between the State Ministry's Narcotics Enforcement Administration, the National Police and Guns & Weapon Control Bureau and the Justice Ministry's Office of Criminal Deterrence & Apprehension and the Office of the Prosecutor General is viable. I think this is due to the high volume of cooperation.

Q9, Jacques L. Xavier: Thank You Deputy Minister Paulette for that. Briefly account for your administration. The NEA activities and operations lacked some detail in previous. This committee is also very interested in the latest news about the National Police brutalities and the recent death of a 16 year old in custody in the infamous Zaricole District.

Deputy Minister Paulette: The Department continues to devote substantial investigative and prosecutorial resources to addressing the problem of drug trafficking. In FY 2013, drug cases represented more than 25 percent of all cases filed by our B.R. Attorneys and 35 percent of Federal defendants. The vast majority of illegal drugs sold in the Bresdennian Realm are supplied by drug trafficking organizations (DTOs). The Department continues to believe that utilizing intelligence to target the highest priority DTOs and those entities and individuals linked to the DTOs, using the Narcotics Enforcement Administration (NEA) and the organized crime and drug enforcement programs, are the most effective approach to fighting the global drug trade and its attendant threats. It is within this strategic framework that the Department generally organizes its efforts to reduce the supply of illegal drugs. These efforts combine the expertise of multiple Federal agencies with international and local partners to mount a comprehensive attack on major drug organizations and the financial infrastructures that support them. This approach has been successful. Just this past fall, the most significant drug traffickers ever to face justice in the Bresdennian Realm- Vladimir and Alexander Julinskiy - pleaded guilty in a Federal court in Eastern Sorrelyn to a charge of conspiracy to import cocaine into the Bresdennian Realm.

The Department recognizes that the southeastern Border remains a critical front in our Nation's defense against both illegal drug trafficking and terrorism. Because a significant amount of drugs that enters the B.R. is trafficked by DTOs based in Nevergo, the Department has been working closely with the Government of Nevergo, including in joint cooperative efforts by law enforcement. In addition, the Department is continuing discussions with the Government of Nevergo regarding extraditions of major drug traffickers.

The Department remains concerned about the non-medical use of controlled substance prescription drugs, which continues to be the fastest rising category of drug abuse in recent years. At the same time, the Department recognizes that it is critical that individuals who are prescribed controlled substance prescription drugs for a legitimate medical purpose have access to these important drugs. Rogue pharmacies operating through the Internet increasingly have become a source for the illegal supply of controlled substances. This issue is a priority for the Department, and we are aggressively applying the full range of enforcement tools available to us to address this increasing problem. The Department looks forward to working with Parliament on additional enforcement tools that may be appropriate.

The recent death of 16 year old Vance Astor, while in police custody is saddening indeed. I was personally made aware of this after it had hit the media. To my knowledge, Mr. Astor was in police custody for assaulting and threatening several neighbors during an altercation. Police were called and Mr. Astor resisted forcefully until being detained. Upon arrival at the local intake center, Mr. Astor began becoming uncooperative and got ahold of Officer Frederic Ferris' service weapon and pursued into a stand off with officers in the intake center. Negotiators were unable to persuade him to cease and was apparently shot. Currently my office is performing a routine investigation to ensure policies were followed. In regards to the recent spike in police brutality cases , I have directed my Chief of Staff, Mr. Alexandre Powell, to lead investigations into this matter.

Q9, Jacques L. Xavier: This is quite simply ridiculous. The National Police is running a muck and you have given this committee nothing of real substance and obvious information, Deputy Minister. Let me ask you this. What do you call recent? This matter seems to have been going on for sum time according to The Equestrian, The Bresdennian Digest and The St. Corlo Times newspapers report incidents as far back as 2011. I find this to be completely unacceptable, Sir. Is it not the duty of the National Police to protect and uphold the laws of this great nation? As soon as the report is available to you from Mr. Powell, notify this committee with urgency. I personally am quite interested in how we can prevent such tragedies, especially with our youth.

Deputy Minister Paulette: Sir, when the information on these spikes reached my office, we immediately became investigating and troubleshooting. There has been suspensions, 2 officers have been relieved of duty and other disciplinary actions have been issued. The results of the investigations will be forwarded to this committee, sir.

Q10, Georg L'Overture: Since the seat is hot, I would like to continue on a few points. But first, Mrs. Johnson, What prosecutions or actions, if any, has your office taken in prosecuting the 2 officers fired?

Prosecutor General Johnson: At this time, I can not account for any prosecutions. I will have to get back to this committee at a later date.

Q10, Georg L'Overture: Do so, we need to set examples and clearly raise the bar for the National Police. The people trust us to do a job, and this committee will see that it is carried out. Speaking of raising the bar, a recent report gives many members of this committee utter disgust at some of the abuse in the prisons; prisoner mistreatment, personnel bribes, drugs and poor maintenance of the jails themselves. What do you have to say Warden? and even your superior? What is being done to curtail the before said?

Warden General Magotti: I am aware of the report in which you speak. I find this report to be useless. The Office of Prison Assessment reports a 2% decrease in reported prisoner mistreatment from the previous year. As per policy, any personnel caught receiving or participating in bribery shall be removed from duty and prosecuted by the Prosecutor General's Office. In the past year, we have contracted Dole Police and Paramilitary Training Consultants and have been implementing other programs such as the Bribery Report Line. I must say that the state of prison system is in need of repair. Prison Construction and Maintenance budgets have been cut for other projects and programs such as rehabilitation and health services. No one has been hurt or put in danger due to the state of the jails to my knowledge. We have several jails and prisons that were built prior to 1950. This means that they are unequipped for our current system and severely outdated. We simply have not been authorized for overhaul or sufficient construction so we patch and portion updates as funds become available. There has been 2 prisons closed due to age, conditions and/or other factors; Ferris Maximum Confinement Center and Percival Downs Detention Center which was in 1936. Prisoners from these two locations were transferred to Calberrier Corrections Facilities in Vanisville, Antonique; General Sampson Ramesey Dentention Camp for Maximum Offenders in Lowdon and other surrounding jails. I am happy to report to the committee that the renovation for West Verster Dentention will be completed in June of this year.
Deputy Minister Parker: I have approved the construction of a new facility. The Warden General and I are currently in the planning stage. We hope that this facility will ease the crowding in population and increase productivity and services. The Warden General tells me that this facility will be able to house approximately 15-17,000. Possible locations are Sanju Pico on Mt. St. Maria or Southwest of Doyle Forest.
