He said any research must be focus on how effective MPs in scrutinizing government business and crafting of laws.

Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, revealed that if it comes to the real business of the house out of Two Hundred and Seventy- Members (275) only few take part and he said these are the yardstick for anyone who want to do any research on Parliament.
