MINISTER OF FINANCE Chris Sinckler has admitted he was wrong about not knowing of a Cabinet decision last year to increase the fees of the National Insurance Board’s directors.

Opposition Leader Mia Mottley had demanded an apology from Sinckler during a political meeting at Baxter’s Road last Saturday night, and it came yesterday while the two were discussing the country’s economic situation during Starcom Network’s call-in programme Brass Tacks.

“I can now say publicly I did not recall [the Cabinet decision] at the time. I had indicated I didn’t have any specific knowledge of it at the time. I didn’t remember that happening. I have researched, it and it is a fact.

“I am conceding that particular fact to the Opposition Leader,” Sinckler added. (BA)
