Lawmakers are prohibited from carrying “dangerous items,” including air horns, water balloons and flour, into meetings, the Legislative Yuan said yesterday.
Legislative Yuan Secretary-General Lin Chih-chia (林志嘉) made the announcement before Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全) issued the directive to the four caucuses.
Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) lawmakers last week thwarted Premier Lin Chuan’s (林全) presentation on the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program and related budget reviews with the aforementioned items.
