Tobago Forwards: Nothing new in Tobago autonomy talks


Leader of the Tobago Forwards, Christlyn Moore says there is nothing new regarding proposals for Tobago’s autonomy.

Speaking with the media on Tuesday, Moore said this is the twenty-seventh time since 1977 that groups have assembled, parliamentary or otherwise, to talk about the issue. She said the population can come to its own conclusion once it is armed with information.

Tobago House of Assembly Chief Secretary, Orville London, detailed talks between himself and the Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley, during his official visit to Tobago since taking office. London said he was comforted by an agreement for frequent dialogue between the THA and Central Government.

However, Moore says this is also not new since there has always been a mechanism allowing for Assemblymen to meet with the various line Ministers.
