Prime Minister Says Meeting Clarified a Number of Issues

Dean Barrow

Shortly after Palacio’s interview with the press, Prime Minister Dean Barrow came down and addressed what he discussed with the teachers, much of which he had already responded to in a letter to the Union responding to their original letter of a few weeks ago.

“Well the agenda was pretty long and the issues raised by the teachers needed to be exhaustedly discussed and so that’s what happened.”



“How was the tone of this meeting and given the at the teachers felt they needed to demonstration to the government that they are serious about these issues; did that play a role?”


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“Well nobody could ever have doubted that the teachers were serious; these are serious people. And so that is why the minute examination of each concern was absolutely necessary. That was done and I believe that it was a useful process and now we shall see what we shall see.”



“Are you bracing for more demonstrations after this meeting?”


Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“I wouldn’t say that we are bracing for more demonstrations. It is that the members of the council of management will go back to their respective branches and will inform as to what took place and so any position arrived at can only come once that process is concluded. I ought not presume to anticipate the outcome of that process.”


We’ll have more from the P.M. later on in the newscast.
