The report also indicates that the legislators require new hyper filters to replace air conditioners. This, they said,  will create a friendly working environment.

Also in the raft of changes is a health center within Parliament, which should be fully equipped with examination rooms with sufficient privacy.

“The Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) should facilitate the refurbishment and renovation of the current health club in compliance with the protocols and guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health on containment of Covid-19 and that the budget that was meant for outsourcing health club services be channeled towards the setting up of the health and wellness unit,” the report read.

“Through the wellness programme, the aim is to enhance the health of members and staff of Parliament that will ultimately increase productivity as well as provide a healthy and safe work environment that will support employees’s health and well being.”

In 2018, the lawmakers complained about poorly prepared food at the cafeteria.

They demanded that the services be outsourced to match those of Five-Star Hotels.
