  • Subject: LAW

This dissertation argues that there is a significant deficiency in the pre-legislative and legislative scrutiny processes in St. Lucia, caused by the failure of Parliament to utilize the Standing Orders in the manner in which they were intended and develop and follow a more systematic scrutiny process. The author explains how this has hindered St. Lucia’s ability to gain more benefit from the legislative process and improve the quality of legislation produced with less likelihood of amendments.
