AG: Tobago legislation under review
The Ministry of the Attorney General is reviewing the legislative arrangements that now govern the relationship between Trinidad and Tobago. A statement from the AG’s Office, released “in light of certain misleading statements,” said the process was ongoing. Several reports and proposals on this issue “that have been informing this and have been lingering around for quite some time now” were being considered.
These reports include:
• the Lionel Seemungal Report, commissioned by Dr Eric Williams in 1977;
• the Calder Hall Accord, chaired by Reginald Dumas 2010;
• the John Prince Committee Interim Report 2009;
• the Forum for the Consensus on the Constitution 2010;
• the first draft of the Constitution Amendment Bill 1996; and
• Opposition’s proposals for the Review of the THA 1995.
According to the AG’s Office, this review is in keeping with the promise made by the People’s Partnership to “enhance, deepen and strengthen the relationship between our twin island Republic as part of the Constitution Reform process. “Upon completion of this exercise, a note will be taken to Cabinet for its consideration,” the release stated.
