Minister for Social Services and Equality Samantha Sacramento yesterday delivered a speech at the 43rd British Islands and Mediterranean Region Annual Conference (BIMR) of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. The event is being hosted in the Falkland Islands and will end today.
Minister Sacramento gave the speech, entitled ‘The Right to Self Determination is not curtailed by Sovereignty Claims’ on behalf of the Chief Minister who was unable to attend the conference.
The GSD yesterday claimed that regarding the issue of Government Debentures and Public Finance. The Party claims that the Government has yet again sought to ‘play the man rather than the ball’.
The comment that the Leader of the Opposition does not understand public finance without dealing with any of the issues raised in our communiqué last week, which are genuinely of concern to Government debenture holders, is simply symptomatic of the way the Government habitually conduct politics. They seem determined not to focus on the issues and properly explain their policy.
