THE REPORT of the Commission of Inquiry into the Alexandra School was laid in Parliament in the pre-lunch sitting of the House of Assembly today, but it was not debated.
Minutes after the sitting commenced at 10:30 a.m., Leader of Government Business in the House, John Boyce, told Speaker Michael Carrington he had been “commanded to lay the report of the Commission of inquiry into the administration of the Alexandra School”.
The official laying of the document follows months of eager anticipation of what action will be taken based on the findings of sole Commissioner Frederick Waterman.
The Commission conducted hearings from July 2 to August 27, Waterman presented his report to the Governor General on September 2, and the latter forwarded a copy to the Prime Minister on the same day.
On October 22, Cabinet considered the report and its recommendations, and on November 2 Prime Minister Freundel Stuart made a statement on it. (RJ)
