Sir Elliott hosts CPA delegates

After a full day of deliberations yesterday, delegates attending the 39th Regional Conference Of The Caribbean, The Americas And The Atlantic Region Of The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association at Hilton Barbados turned up at the residence of Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave last night to unwind and enjoy Barbadian hospitality at a cocktail reception on the well manicured lawns of  Government House.

The social event gave foreign delegates an opportunity to meet and interact with such outstanding Barbadian legislators as 90-year-old Sir Frederick Smith, legal luminary and former parliamentarian Elliott Mottley and many sitting Members of Parliament. Among those sitting MPs were Acting Prime Minister Richard Sealy, Donville Inniss, Cynthia Forde, Gline Clarke, Edmund Hinkson, Dwight Sutherland, Government Senators Darcy Boyce and Patrick Todd, and Independent Senators Alwyn Adams, Tony Marshall and Dean Emeritus Harold Crichlow.
