Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has acknowledged receipt of the Opposition Leader’s seven page response to his request for a meeting.
In a social media post on Tuesday evening, Rowley said: ” Having received a voluminous seven (7) page reply from the Opposition Leader, I deliberately chose to focus on what could be extracted as elements of public interest in keeping with my invitation to have bilateral talks.
He said the Opposition’s voluminous response contains an appendix of suggested issues to which the Government will add and respond by outlining additional matters to be raised by the Government.
“When this is done there will then be an agenda of work for the suggested eight person Committee.”
The PM said the Government will ignore all fictional inclusions and engage with the Opposition on the facts and possibilities of all the identifiable situations.
“The Government team will be named in the coming days and the actual engagements will take place after the budget debates are concluded. In the interim, there could be a further exchange of documents as initially suggested,” Rowley added.
