THERE should be some law introduced in villages to control the drinking of yaqona.
Losana Sauturaga, the only woman who made her submission in Naitasiri yesterday, made particular reference to women who were heavy yaqona drinkers.
She said intake could be harmful and added that it was sacred and should not be misused.
She also highlighted that the government of the day needed to engage more in the lives of women in the village, encouraging them to get into small businesses.
"There are so many talented women who need some form of support to start up their livelihood," Ms Sauturaga said.
Talking on same sex marriage, she said there should not be any laws put in place which promoted same sex marriages.
She said parents needed to be loyal to their children and tell them what was right.
"If I have a child who may be showing signs of not being straight — I will always remind my child that it is wrong — because Jesus has instructed us in principles from the Bible which is clear — that union is between a man and a woman," Ms Sauturaga said.
