BLP attempt to bring no confidence motion against Speaker rejected
THE OPPOSITION Barbados Labour Party’s attempt to bring a no-confidence motion in the House of Assembly against Speaker Michael Carrington has apparently been rejected.
Nation reporter in Parliament this morning, Gercine Carter, has been told that Leader of Opposition Business in the chamber, MP Santia Bradshaw, was informed in writing today that the motion would not be entertained.
However, details on the precise contents of the correspondence remained sketchy, but the Opposition is expected to hold a Press conference any minute now.
Meanwhile, “independent” MP Owen Arthur explained that he was unsure all along that the motion would have been allowed before the House, adding that he was prepared to contribute to debate if it was.
The motion was filed last Wednesday. (RRM)
