Premier Alden McNee McLaughlin Jr

GEORGE TOWN – Cayman Islands Premier Alden McLaughlin has urged politicians in the United Kingdom (UK) to refrain from “driving a wedge” between the people in the overseas territories by intervening in affairs that are the responsibility of the elected governments.

He made the statement last week in Monaco where he meet with UK officials and members of the yachting community in the south of France.

 The premier updated the British lawmakers about the economic progress but also said that there was a “worrying trend” and “alarming approach” taken by the Foreign Affairs Committee in its recent report.

“Continued high-level engagement with MPs and peers is essential for the Cayman Islands to maintain a presence and understanding within the Houses of Commons and Lords,” the premier stated Friday in a press release about his trip (CMC)
