Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya is leading a delegation of members of Parliamentary Service Commission to a tour of duty in Britain when they visited Houses of Parliament at Westminster in London.
In an interview with Nyasa Times, Msowoya said the tour of duty is under the invitation of the UK parliament.
Msowoya said the commission had another inter parliamentary conference in the city of St peters burg in Russia.
“The meetings in UK will focus on discussion about parliamentary governance and structure. The two sides will share ideas on how best they can work together and learn from each other,” said Msowoya.
“ We have the opportunity to learn a lot from the UK parliament and we have the advantage because our parliamentary structure is originated from the UK House of commons” said Msowoya.
In the delegation, Msowoya is joined by lawmakers who are commissioners and they include Dzoole Mwale, Ralph Jooma, Abubakar Mbaya, Aaron Sangala and Emily Chinthu Phiri.
Others on the trip are Chikondi Kachinjika a financial controller, Vitumbiko Chitaya a personal assistant to the Speaker and Sunge Klaumo a personal assistant to the commission.

They also met First Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle ad Principal Clerk Crispin Poyster.
