PM pleased with conduct of enquiry
The conduct of the Commission of Enquiry into the Alexandra School has so far made Prime Minister Freundel Stuart a happy man.
“If I must be very frank. I have heard nothing about the commission of enquiry that has caused me any disquiet. That’s about the commission itself,” Prime Minister Stuart told reporters at his official residence this morning.
Stuart however made it clear that he had deliberately refused to follow the daily revelations of evidence coming out of the hearing. His reason, he said, was that he wanted to wait for the official report of the commissioner.
“I didn’t want my mind in any way jaundiced by anything I read; or I didn’t wanted to form any particular impression about anything, so I steered very clear of what was going on at the commission of enquiry.
“I was more concerned, and my permanent secretary was a great assistance in this regard; to make sure that the administrative arrangements put in place for commission were functioning effectively so that the commissioner could get through with their work,” the Prime Minister insisted.
He said he would await any recommendations made in respect of the commission’s work “and thereafter we’ll take it from there”. (EJ)
