Coronavirus outbreak: Limited number of MPs will be called for emergency session on COVID-19: House Leader

Government House Leader Pablo Rodriguez said on Wednesday that the federal government was looking at various options for when an emergency session on COVID-19 is called, saying they would only call back enough MPs to meet quorum, approximately 20 to 30, and would not include MPs who have to travel by plane. He stressed it would be the requisite number to “mirror” the representation in the House. Rodriguez added, however, that a teleconference method would not be possible at this time.
