During the December 2023 Parliament sitting, Sir Julius sought clarity from the Parliament Speaker after his bills were not included in the notice papers since May 2023.

After the 2nd Parliament motion presentation, Sir Julius states the process is still a long way, but he is optimistic for favorable outcome.

The Private Business Committee will now determine whether these bills are matters of national importance and a copy of the motion will be given to the clerk for reporting to the Parliament for a second reading which will give the opportunity to Members of Parliament to debate.
