Estwick takes oath

AFTER a brief illness that prevented him from being sworn in with Cabinet colleagues last Friday, reappointed Minister of Agriculture Dr David Estwick finally took the oath of office yesterday.
Estwick turned up at Government House early in the morning to be sworn in by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave, about one hour before Opposition members were due to arrive for their ceremony.
There had been concern about the absence of the St Philip West MP when other members of the Freundel Stuart Cabinet were sworn in, but the Prime Minister later said Estwick’s absence was due to illness.
