Legislators will return to Parliament today with a single item up for debate.

MPs will discuss a special development order for homes at the Rosewood Tuckerís Point resort, which was tabled last December by Walton Brown, the Minister of Home Affairs.

Mr Brown will also table a draft agreement between the Corporation of Hamilton and HSBC Bank Bermuda Ltd.

Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier, will bring the 2015-16 audited financial report for the Regulatory Authority.

Ministerial statements include the 2016 Census preliminary report, brought by government reform minister Lovitta Foggo, and an update on the cost of living commission, which will be given by David Burt, the Premier.

Parliamentary questions include requests for details on personal staff hired by Mr Burt since taking office, and the final cost for the Census, as well as the numbers and costs for the government employees from 2012 to 2017.

The controversy over new fees for medical diagnostic imaging may come up for discussion in responses from health minister Kim Wilson to Susan Jackson, the shadow minister, on supplementary payments to service providers affected by reduced fees.

Jamahl Simmons, the Minister of Economic Development and Tourism, is scheduled to address media reports on the Casino Gaming Commission.

Todayís session will open with a moment of silence for Ernest DeCouto, former Speaker of the House of Assembly, and former minister Quinton Edness.
